Alucobond® Plus Material Gleams at Plaza Midtown
Opened in early 2006, The Plaza Midtown in Atlanta is a mixed-use development featuring residential condominiums in two 20-story towers, and 70,000 sq. ft. of neighborhood retail. The gleaming twin towers of Silver Metallic Alucobond® Plus Material and glass are located on a 3.3-acre site that covers an entire city block, from Eighth St. to Peachtree Place between Spring and West Peachtree Streets. Directly accessible to the I-75/I-85 connector, this is part of a dynamic area with market growth that is drawing urban professionals and development.
More than 53,000 sq. ft. of Alucobond Plus Material in 4mm thickness was installed in 2,379 panels, designed and fabricated by the installing subcontractor, Miller-Clapperton Partnership of Austell, Georgia. The attachment system was the MCP System 100. General contractor was Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC of Kennesaw, Georgia.
