The building at 1375 Peachtree St. was constructed in the mid-80s and hasn’t been renovated since the 90s, according to proposal materials. 

Renovations would include updates such as a “reimagined” lobby, a new third floor public “green” lounge and grassy areas along the sidewalk. A rendering shows the facade painted white, including the base portion that’s currently red brick.
