Conceptual art of what may become Atlanta’s fifth tallest building has been publicly released.

New-York based Rockefeller Group is pitching a plan to build a 61-story tower in Midtown at the southwest corner of 12th Street and West Peachtree Street. The skyscraper would include 350 market-rate apartments, 212,000 square feet of office space and 6,600 square feet of ground-level retail.

The 733-foot tower located at 1072 West Peachtree St. would take the place of a U.S. Post Office building. It would eclipse the 723-foot Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, currently Atlanta’s fifth tallest building.

The Bank of America Plaza, rising to 1,023 feet with 50 stories, is currently the state’s tallest building.

The plan for the new building includes an eight-story fully screened podium deck with 850 parking spaces accessible from both West Peachtree and 12th Street. The residential lobby and leasing office would face 12th Street, while the office lobby and retail stores would be accessible from West Peachtree.

Atlanta-based TVS is the lead design and architect for the project. Brock Hudgins Architects, also based in the city, is working on the residential portion of the tower.

The Midtown Development Review Committee, which released the art Tuesday, requested more information about the proposed tower at a meeting earlier this month. The committee is expected to discuss the plan again and make a recommendation at its Dec. 14 meeting.

The members of the committee, appointed jointly by the City of Atlanta and Midtown Alliance, will send their recommendation to the city’s Office of Zoning and Development.
