Atlanta — Simon Property Group has announced a series of improvements for Phipps Plaza in Atlanta’s fashionable Buckhead district.
The first improvement will make over the interior with a fresh new look. Plans include upgraded LED lighting, repainting, new warm wood accents, an updated railing system, luxury soft seating and lounging areas with Wi-Fi connectivity and chargers, upgraded restrooms and the installation of a hotel-like concierge service center.
The project also includes major improvements to the parking decks. All entrances from the parking decks to the mall will be improved with new flooring, lighting and automatic doors to welcome customers. Lighting in the parking decks will be converted to energy efficient LEDs, which will also improve lighting throughout the parking decks.
Additional projects being planned include improvements to the property’s entrance along Peachtree Road, which will include a dynamic streetscape filled with luxury storefronts and new lush landscaping. New additions will include 320 luxury residential units and a 164-room hotel with upscale dining.
Construction will commence this summer and finish up before the holiday season.
The property will remain open during the renovations.
