ATLANTA -- Construction is well underway at Phipps Plaza as the mall begins to transform its main entrance on Peachtree Road as part of the overall enhancements that are taking place during its renovation project.
Construction workers are currently working diligently alongside a 550-ton max capacity crane to begin the process of improving the mall’s main entry. The crane arrived at Phipps Plaza dissembled in 11 tractor trailer loads of parts, and it took eight men and eight hours to install.
Scheduled to be complete in fall 2015, shoppers will instantly notice these exterior enhancements, designed to be consistent with the interior renovations to the mall which have been undertaken this year. The entrance will be unique consisting of intricately designed perforated metal panels and glass curtain wall that will be backlit, creating a dynamic gateway to the property both day and night.
