Plans for the Second and Peabody mixed-use development have been significantly re-imagined. Everything from the architecture, scale, geometry, as well as building function has been modified. The revised plan proposes a central hotel tower flanked by 2 multi-family towers. The primary pedestrian and vehicular circulation are along 3rd Avenue South. The plaza and pocket parks are primarily located on 2nd Avenue South.
Tower 1 is Located on Lea Ave. and is 32 stories tall; Tower 2 is located on Peabody Street and is 36 stories tall. The central Hotel Tower is 18 stories tall. The office tower in the previous plan has been re-programmed as a multi-family tower.
The expansive pedestrian plaza from the initial plans remain, however, the aesthetic & feel, are more complementary of the new architecture. The plaza features two large water features, is more linear and stretches along 2nd Avenue South between Peabody Street & Lea Ave. Here’s the quick rundown:
