Piedmont Atlanta Tower Reaches Topping Out Milestone

Building Alabama

After breaking ground in January 2017, the Piedmont Atlanta Tower, Piedmont Healthcare’s expansion project, reached its topping out milestone – meaning that framing of the 16-story structure is complete. To mark the occasion for the project, which remains on-budget and on-schedule to open in late summer 2020, Piedmont held celebratory events on Wednesday for the design and construction team, employees and for approximately 80 major donors who have made donations of $100,000 or more to support the capital expansion project.

The tower will house Piedmont Heart Institute, which has one of two heart transplant programs in Georgia and is a top destination for cardiovascular care. The tower will include the new Marcus Heart and Vascular Center, made possible through a $75 million donation from The Marcus Foundation, and the tower also will feature the Samsky Invasive Cardiovascular Services Center. Brett, Louise and Connor Samsky recently pledged $11 million to establish the Samsky Center.

“This milestone is the result of the hard work of our project team, client and trade partners, aided by a strong focus on innovation, collaboration, safety and self-perform,” said Brasfield & Gorrie CEO Jim Gorrie. “We are honored to continue our longstanding relationship with Piedmont Healthcare and deliver this transformative facility.”
