Simon, an Indianapolis-based company that owns shopping malls nationwide, July 9 announced the demolition phase of the Phipps Plaza redevelopment project in Buckhead has been completed. The first phase of the construction to transform a portion of the mall from a Belk wing to a mixed-use development has begun.

In November 2017 Simon and Nobu reps announced plans for a mixed-use project that will include a new Nobu Hotel and Nobu Atlanta Restaurant, a 90,000-square-foot Life Time center and a 13-story, 350,000-square-foot Class A office building, One Phipps Plaza, that will include a three-story, lower-level parking deck.

In October the Nobu senior leadership, including legendary actor Robert De Niro, joined Atlanta leaders as the organizations officially broke ground on the project.

Using a construction crew of about 400 workers, the Beck Group is serving as architect and general contractor for the redevelopment, with a phased opening beginning in early 2021. Crucial components of the demolition phase included razing the former Belk building and removing a three-level parking deck.

As part of Simon’s sustainable redevelopment planning, the flattened 18,000 tons of concrete and 200 tons of asphalt from the former parking deck will be repurposed and used for other projects. In addition, the new office building, One Phipps Plaza, is being carefully constructed to meet LEED certification. [READ MORE HERE] Source: Marietta Daily Journal
