Gilbane Celebrates “Topping Out” at 1000 Park Avenue
ATLANTA, GA — Gilbane Building Company celebrated a major milestone at the 1000 Park Avenue project in Atlanta, Georgia. The topping out ceremony was attended by representatives from Wood Partners, Reese Vanderbilt & Associates, and Gilbane. The event took place on Level 2 of the parking garage with nearly 500 people in attendance who were treated to a barbecue lunch. Senior General Superintendent Dennis Evans addressed the attendees, presented several team members with Excellence Awards, and raffled off more than 175 prizes, including five TVs and an extra-large Big Green Egg.
The 27-story residential tower features a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units in the heart of Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. The tower houses 267 luxury units, a three-story parking deck and community amenities such as a private motor court for guest and resident access, private outdoor terrace and pool deck, fitness center, residential club and a residential Sky Lounge on the 27th floor with a covered outdoor terrace overlooking downtown Atlanta.
“This projects marks the third and final phase of a development Gilbane started more than 10 years ago with the construction of 700 Park Regency and 750 Park Avenue,” said Jeff George, Vice President for the Southeast Division of Gilbane Building Company. "I can’t say enough about our amazing team and the work they’ve done to bring this project to the topping out. And, of course, having a great client—Wood Partners—and their collaborative and authentic leadership has brought out the best in our team."
