Simon has additional projects in the works, including a makeover of the Peachtree Road entrance. It also plans to construct 320 luxury residential units to Phipps. According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Texas-based Columbus Realty Partners filed plans for the project in 2012, but they were delayed after they were presented to neighbors.
Phipps Plaza’s mall manager Dewayne Herbert said in an announcement that he believed customers would be satisfied with the upcoming renovations.
“These initial enhancements will provide a visible transformation of the interior environment that will be more consistent with the one-of-a-kind Phipps shopping experience that our customers deserve.”
