[CLARIFICATION: 1:18 p.m. April 4: CP Group reps clarify that the top-floor space at Bank of America Plaza will not be a public restaurant but “an incoming amenity for tenants.” Also, at ground level, the new building shown in renderings is a café (or coffee/barista stand) and not a second full restaurant near the street, according to project officials. This story's headline has been modified accordingly.]

At street level and way above, more public-accessible functionality is bound for the tallest building in the Southeast.

That’s according to a new Bank of America Plaza marketing package obtained by Urbanize Atlanta. It promises visitors will “see Atlanta’s tallest tower in a whole new light” as part of an ongoing, $50-million capital improvement project that’s updating the 1992 landmark.

Notable changes will include a swanky restaurant and lounge space on the top floor—55 stories up—plus another new restaurant at street level, with a more inviting public plaza built along West Peachtree Street, on the western side of the block, according to marketing materials.

Those changes will join a jewel-box restaurant in the works at the building’s base near North Avenue, along with substantial interior upgrades at the lobby level.

Building owner CP Group, a Florida-based commercial real estate and management firm with a substantial Atlanta portfolio, started construction on the upgrades last summer as part of the building’s The South Star rebranding efforts. We’ve reached out to leasing officials with SRS Real Estate Group for more information and will update this story with any additional details that come.

According to the marketing package, the eye-catching standalone restaurant space will highlight the new plaza area that faces Peachtree Street. It’s described as a “high-end… culinary destination... with colorfully landscaped walkways and covered seating.”

As for the 55th-floor concept, it’s being called “a brand-new amenity perched atop the tower’s highest floor [with] space to lounge, dine, celebrate, and more—all with unbeatable views of Atlanta as a backdrop.”
