On November 9, 2010 The City of Atlanta acquired this historic downtown building, once owned by Cox Enterprises and former home to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Mayor Reed publicly received the donation with great anticipations for the building to become a thriving workplace for many Atlantans as well as a City gallery space, once located at City Hall East.
However, many cosmetic changes are needed for The City of Atlanta to call 72 Marietta a true representation of Atlanta’s forward growth, particularly within the defined gallery and lobby areas. This pivotal re-design will focus on the visitors entry way and current lobby into the 9 story, 180,000-square-foot tower located on Marietta and Fairlie streets. This will be the very first space any visitor to the building will experience and the last before they leave
The gallery design selected will be able to host various, regional, national, and international contemporary exhibitions. Versatility is a key factor within the selection of a design. The space will be able to transition to best showcase 3d, 2d and installation artwork. Although flexible – the gallery will look to host exhibits on a 3 month rotation therefore artwork transportation, installation and storage of potentially large scale artworks will be a factor. Anticipated build out cost is estimated at $100,000.00.
