Event Summary


Buckhead is known for its upscale malls, high-rise office buildings, hotels and condos, clustered around the famous Peachtree Road. The 40-acre Lenox Square is amongst the most valuable pieces of real estate in Atlanta and has had rumors of a revamp for years that has never panned out. Now that several hotels like Songy Highroad's Hyatt Centric are moving in, John Rulli, president of Simon Malls and chief administration officer for Simon Property Group

surmises that "[we] are going to see some things happen at Lenox that are really going to be exciting."

Simon also owns Phipps Plaza, which is adding a $200 million mixed-use project that features a Nobu hotel, office space and an athletic facility. Find out what other redevelopment plans are in store as mall owners compete with e-commerce and other experiential trends.
