Batson-Cook, Regent Partners to Develop $400M Mixed-Use Project in Atlanta’s Buckhead Financial District
ATLANTA — Batson-Cook Development Co. (BCDC) has formed a joint venture partnership with Regent Partners LLC to acquire a parcel in the Buckhead financial district of Atlanta and develop a $400 million mixed-use project.
The office, retail and multifamily development will be located at 3354 and 3356 Peachtree Road, near State Route 400 and Buckhead’s MARTA train station. The four-acre property will consist of two buildings with more than 550,000 square feet of office and retail space, 60 condominiums and 300 multifamily units. Construction is expected to begin in 2018.
The project will feature outlet roads leading to Peachtree Road, Piedmont Road and the Buckhead Loop. The new MARTA pedestrian bridge spanning Georgia 400 gives the project direct access to public transit.
The Buckhead Community Improvement District has also proposed a nine-acre park on top of a half-mile stretch of Georgia 400 from the Buckhead Loop to Peachtree Road. Upon completion, the $245 million park will serve as the entrance to the joint venture’s new project.
