June 4, 2018

ATLANTA, Ga.—CBG Building Company began work this month on Generation Atlanta, a 336-unit, market-rate apartment community with 12 residential floors above five levels of parking plus amenities. The project will be the tallest building constructed using Prescient technology, and the City of Atlanta's first such structure.

"Kaplan Residential is excited to continue its legacy of building first class apartment complexes in downtown Atlanta," said Nathan Kaplan, partner at Kaplan Residential. "Generation Atlanta will be an iconic building that will change the Atlanta skyline, and its cutting edge technology brings luxury living to the most underserved submarket in the city."

The community is situated in downtown Atlanta on a 1.5-acre site opposite the Center for Civil and Human Rights; near landmarks such as Centennial Olympic Park, Philips Arena, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and the Georgia Aquarium; and walking distance from the Marta North Avenue Station.

The project features deep foundational construction with auger cast piles and an open, 380-space parking deck. Generation Atlanta's amenity and leasing area includes a fitness center, clubroom, elevated pool, and rooftop sky deck.

"This project illustrates our commitment to stay on the cutting edge of construction technology, providing our clients with the widest range of building systems available," said Chris Hirst, senior vice president of CBG Building Company. "Kaplan Residential chose CBG to turn their vision into a reality and we are up to the challenge."

Prescient's patented BIM design and USA-made, recycled-content steel minimizes costs, saves time, and reduces Generation Atlanta's environmental footprint to less than one percent waste. Generation Atlanta also promotes walkability through its urban, pedestrian-friendly location in close proximity to public transportation.

When complete in August 2020, Generation Atlanta will mark over one million square feet of CBG construction using Prescient systems.
