    Osprey Tops Out in West Midtown Atlanta

    June 26, 2019


    ATLANTA – Osprey, Toll Brothers Apartment Living’s newest Atlanta community, tops out in West Midtown by general contractor Balfour Beatty. The 13-story, mixed-use development is designed to maximize project density by leveraging the Prescient modular construction technology and off-site manufacturing platform to construct the project’s entire tower structure. Osprey is the first Atlanta project with the Prescient system to go vertical and top out.  
     
    The 325,000-square-foot Class A development features a 13-story Prescient tower, two five-story buildings and a seven-story, 540-car parking garage. Osprey includes 30,000 square feet of interior service and retail space, in addition to amenities including an exterior pool, fitness-on-demand studio, a sky lounge with a community bar, co-working space and a dog park. With a total of 319 residential units, the top two floors will feature luxury penthouse units with private outdoor living areas.
     
    “Topping out the Osprey is a great milestone for our team and we’re honored to be Toll Brothers Apartment Living’s construction partner in delivering this innovative project,” said Patrick Fleming, senior project manager, Balfour Beatty. “Toll Brothers is always seeking new, innovative ways to deliver quality projects and our project team takes great pride in being the first in Atlanta to go vertical and top out a project with the Prescient system. As we move toward project completion, we are pleased with the benefits we have realized by taking an off-site, modular construction approach to delivering Osprey.” 
     
    Focused on leveraging the latest technologies and innovative building practices to deliver Osprey, Balfour Beatty leveraged the Prescient platform to help achieve Toll Brothers Apartment Living’s construction objectives when compared to a typical post-tensioned concrete frame or other load-bearing structural frame options. In addition to the wall panels with structural columns, the Prescient system is also being used for precast balconies, stairs and infill-framing.  
     
    With project completion scheduled for first quarter 2020, Balfour Beatty began installing the prefabricated tower structure in February 2019. In addition to Prescient, Balfour Beatty’s design partners on Osprey include Brock Hudgins Architects, S.A. Miro, M2 Structural, and Proficient Engineering.
