The office tower is the last of three high-rises to reach full height, according to a press release. The 26-story Mira at Midtown Union multifamily tower topped out this summer, while the 14-story Kimpton Hotel topped out in March. General contractor Brasfield & Gorrie began construction of all three towers in November 2019 with plans for a unified delivery in third quarter 2022.

The class-AA, 612,000-square-foot office tower is 50% leased and will become Invesco’s new headquarters when complete. A project of MetLife Investment Management and Granite Properties, the tower is seeking LEED and Fitwel certifications. The building will offer a 12,000-square-foot outdoor amenity terrace on the eighth floor.

Mira, a project of StreetLights Residential and MetLife Investment Management, will offer studio and one-, two- or three-bedroom floor plans, ranging from 496 to 1,731 square feet. Resident amenities will include concierge services, a coffee bar, a resident bar and lounge, conference and co-working spaces, a pet spa and an outdoor amenity deck with a pool overlooking Midtown.

The Kimpton hotel is being developed by AMS Hospitality and MetLife and, besides its 230 rooms, will offer a chef-driven restaurant and bar, a second-story bar and lounge and 5,400 square feet of meeting and events space.

Other components of Midtown Union, which is located between Spring and West Peachtree streets at 17h Street, include an extension of Arts Center Way with 32,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and green space and a 635,000-square-foot parking deck with 1,909 spaces.

“With Midtown Union’s office, residential and hotel towers topped out, we’re pleased to see this lifestyle destination coming to life,” said Robert Merck, global head of Real Estate and Agriculture at MetLife Investment Management. “We’re confident that Midtown Union will create significant benefits for tenants, the surrounding community and the city at large.”
