No. 2 Opus Place, a luxury condominium tower planned in Midtown, has obtained the official land displacement permit required by the city of Atlanta, enabling preconstruction excavation work to start immediately.
“Reeves Young, recently engaged in the SunTrust Park for the Atlanta Braves and one of the region’s most respected contractors since 1952, will now begin excavation work on the 4.5-acre site at 98 14th St., adjacent to the Woodruff Arts Center,” Karen Rodriguez, vice president of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties’ City Haus division, said in a news release.
Don Reynolds, managing principal of the architectural firm Perkins + Will, which has designed No. 2 Opus, said, “This is an important construction milestone toward a new vision for urban living and engagement in Atlanta.”
Completion of the tallest residential building in the city at 53 stories, featuring one- to three-bedroom homes and penthouses, is right on schedule for early 2020.
“The development team of Opus Place is unequivocally committed to this time frame and unwavering in plans to create Atlanta’s most distinguished residential complex,” Rodriguez said. “With five new executed contracts completed just this week, the momentum for the already strong pre-sales of these condominiums continues rapidly. Visitors to the elaborate on-site Sales Gallery have increased, with guests impressed by the stylishly decorated model residence and the tour-de-force of simulated 360-degree views from each unit through amazingly advanced technology.”
The sales gallery, with free parking and easy access from 14th St., is open and staffed by No. 2 Opus representatives weekdays and Sundays.
“The Opus Place master plan is designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier, whose High Museum of Art Stent Pavilion is an Atlanta landmark,” Rodriquez said.
