A detailed look at the design of the Phipps Plaza Redevelopment. The Phipps Plaza development re-envisions a major anchor tenant component of the Phipps Plaza mall in the Buckhead region of Atlanta, GA. A three story parking deck and department store building will be demolished and rebuilt as a vibrant, experiential mixed use regional destination. A new four story parking podium will support a Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, a 13 story Office Tower, and a new Anchor Building addition to the exiting mall, integrated into a common streetscape and sharing an outdoor event plaza. The project is currently under construction as of January 2019 at an approximate cost of $230 Million. This presentation will cover the unique Integrated Design Build process of the Beck Group and how architecture, construction, estimating, and the owner work together on the pursuit, design, pricing, and the build of this exciting redevelopment.
