This Week's Atlanta Deal Sheet
John Dewberry appears to be moving forward again on his planned renovation of Midtown's Campanile Building.
Dewberry Group, led by the former Georgia Tech quarterback and one of Atlanta's most well-known commercial real estate figures, filed a land disturbance application with the city of Atlanta Aug. 16 to begin work on its Campanile project. The proposed permit seeks to demolish existing landscapes and hardscapes and grade the site to make way for an expansion of the first six levels of the 21-story tower into a mix of uses, including adding two grease traps for future food service providers.
In May, Dewberry proposed a major overhaul of the 455K SF office tower at 1155 Peachtree St., a redevelopment that seeks to add six new stories atop the tower and build eight floors of office and retail at the base. The developer is seeking to add a total of 265K SF of office and 39K SF of retail in a 27-story final product, Bisnow previously reported.
Cleveland Electric Co. has leased 51K SF at Building 100 in Northcreek Office Park in Buckhead, moving from its owned offices off Fulton Industrial Boulevard. Northcreek is a four-building office park totaling 537K SF owned by Regent Partners.
Cushman & Wakefield Executive Managing Director Aileen Almassy and associate Melanie Garlock represented the landlord. McWhirter Realty Partners' Dan Buyers and Peyton McWhirter represented the tenant.
