98 Fourteenth Street set to become the second-tallest skyscraper in Atlanta

This fall, ground is expected to be broken on a skyscraper that would become the second-tallest building in Atlanta.

The tower, named 98 Fourteenth Street, was once scheduled to consist of three buildings, according to What Now Atlanta. Now, there will be a large tower and a second smaller building with a total of about 150,000 square feet of space, the report added.

Located on – you guessed it – Fourteenth Street, the new skyscraper would rise 920 feet off the ground, which would make it the 27th-tallest building in the United States, according to a USA Today list.

Inside the building, there will be 382 luxury condos that will assuredly be sold at top dollar, as well as 180 extended-stay suites, WNA also reported. An enclosed 11-level parking deck will be located near ground level, as opposed to underground.

Ah oh, there’ll be amenities, WNA said: “a full-floor ‘sky lounge’ with floor-to-ceiling glass with sweeping skyline views, conference and media rooms, a heated, infinity-edge pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, designated children’s play area, bike storage, a private dining room, and a high-end kitchen and bar ‘catering to epicurean enthusiasts.'”

Curbed Atlanta still has its doubts that this tower will be constructed as the plans show. After all, this is already the second iteration of the tower, so they’re not ruling out the possibility that the tower changes shape again before crews break ground.

If the structure is built as currently planned, 98 Fourteenth Street would fall more than 100 feet shy of overtaking the Bank of America Plaza as the tallest building in Atlanta, and the BoA Plaza will remain America’s tallest skyscraper that’s not located in New York City or Chicago.
