1010 Midtown is a 35-story, 124 m (407 ft) skyscraper in Atlanta, Georgia featuring 425 condominiums atop 38,000 sq ft (3,500 m2) of retail and dining space. The structure is part of the 12th & Midtown development, situated on approximately 2 acres (0.81 ha) on the block between 11th and 12th streets in Midtown Atlanta, the front of which follows the curve of Peachtree Street. The 1010 Midtown building also features a park-in-the-sky, which will be one of the largest environmentally green rooftops in the city.[5]

Daniel Corporation, Selig Enterprises, the Canyon-Johnson Urban Fund (CJUF) and MetLife combined forces to make 1010 Midtown, a key piece in the Midtown Mile, a reality. The building was designed by the architecture firm Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio and built by Brasfield & Gorrie. Construction of this first phase of the 12th & Midtown development began in August 2006 and was completed in early 2009.

At the base of 1010 Midtown sits several new restaurants and bars, including Ra Sushi, La Piola, and Ri Ra Irish Pub. It also houses a Bank of America branch and additional retail space fronting Peachtree Street, including a CB2 store that opened in August 2010.

2012 suicide jump[edit]

On March 9, 2012, a man jumped to his death from the 35th floor of the building.[6]

Midtown Mile[edit]

The Midtown Mile, a block that is expected to cover some 3,000,000 sq ft (280,000 m2) when completed, will run along Peachtree Street and will be the newest location for high-end retail and dining activities in Atlanta. It will host a variety of flagship storefronts, restaurants, hotels and high-rises, of which, 1010 Midtown will be the first to be fully completed.
