Swank Conversion of 60’s Office Building into Super Hip Hotel
The Old Oxford Industries Building, a Atlanta clothing manufacturer since 1942, with brands such as Tommy Bahama and Lily Pulitzer, has been purchased by developer Jim Cumming of Trillium Properties. The plan is a drop-dead cool reimagining of the circa 1965 building into a new boutique hotel. The structure is at 222 Piedmont Avenue, Downtown Atlanta, just east of Peachtree Center. I met Jim Cumming back in the 1990’s and he was one impressive guy. The building was purchased for $2.5 million. Let’s hope these plans come to fruition.
Multi-talented Plexus-Architecture is the Atlanta architect of the plans. Take a look at the beautiful renderings of the transformation of this building:
