A new rendering of the exterior makeover to Phipps Plaza in Buckhead has been released by mall operator Simon. According to an accompanying media release, work on the new facade is scheduled to be complete in the fall and feature intricately designed metal panels and a backlit glass curtain wall.

The new exterior comes on the heels of a big interior makeover last year including upgraded LED lighting, a complete repainting, new wood accents,  lounge areas with Wi-Fi connectivity and chargers, upgraded restrooms, and the installation of a hotel-like concierge center.

Also in the works by Simon is an adjacent residential project called Domain at Phipps, a 319-unit mid-rise from Columbus Realty Partners, Ltd. and a joint venture with Noble Investment Group, which will bring the AC Hotels by Marriott brand to Phipps Plaza.
