With residential at its focus, The Rhapsody would offer 270 apartments and 55 condominiums with separate lobbies accessed from Peachtree Street. There would be a ground-floor restaurant with outdoor dining, and plans call for art, a water feature, and “flexible” performance space between the property and the sidewalk. The 267-foot tall building steps down as it gets closer to the rear alley, in compliance with the Transitional Height Plane that limits the height of buildings adjacent to residential districts, such as Ansley Park, according to a recap report from the DRC.

“Overall, the DRC was complimentary of the building massing and the site plan, but they requested additional details about” the “façade treatment on the ground level facing Peachtree Street and at the rear of the project facing the alley, a need for screening for the parking deck and any rooftop mechanical systems to mitigate impacts on adjacent neighbors, and more information about how trucks and other service vehicles would handle loading and trash pick-up without blocking the alley.”

As a next step in moving the project forward, the DRC requested that Capital City meet with Ansley’s neighborhood association at the upcoming meeting on October 20 to discuss reasonable design alternatives. Following that, the DRC also asked the developer to provide an electronic submittal that illustrates any design revisions, including requested refinements to the east and west façades.

Interesting looking building from the front.
The top looks like a house of cards– that would blow away in a storm.

That transitional height plane makes for some funny looking rears to buildings
