SPRING: 18 Soaring Skyscrapers Sprout in Midtown

In only six blocks east-west, and 13 blocks north-south,

Midtown Atlanta has 18 new skyscrapers approved or under construction.

The four tallest towers will be 50, 51, 57, & 60 stories-

some of the most towering buildings in the US.

Seven of them will be quite tall at 22 to 25 floors. The three shortest will be 16-19 stories. And, three will be a lofty 30 to 39 floors high. Not to mention the new mid-rises with hundreds of apartments, condos, and retail spaces.

The very tallest structures will be between 12th and 15th Street between Peachtree Street and West Peachtree Street, at the very the apex of Midtown.
