Case Study for One Buckhead Plaza

Client: Cousins Properties

Overview
Standing 20 stories tall on the east side of prestigious Buckhead, One Buckhead Plaza is a vibrant home to various company headquarters, commercial offices and a host of high-end shops, restaurants and services. The building was designed by highly respected architects at Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates and built in 1987 as part of a mixed-use complex encompassing 40,000 square feet of retail space. With help from Sustainable Investment Group (SIG), the building has achieved excellent energy efficiency and earned ENERGY STAR ratings since 2010. The building also provides a number of other amenities and conveniences for its tenants, their clients and visitors, including a nine-story parking garage with 1,204 parking spaces and easy access to the complex. Reaching nearly 256 feet tall, One Buckhead Plaza leaves an unmistakable footprint on the surrounding neighborhood, from its modern ornamental buttresses to its impressive list of tenants.

A convenient, upscale location at 3060 Peachtree Road NW is part of the development’s charm. Dozens of restaurants, notable shops and renowned Atlanta businesses are within quick walking or driving distance of the complex, and its neighboring Two Buckhead Plaza offers more of the same. The building is not far from I-75/85 and Highway 400.
