John Portman wants a bigger house.
The 83-year-old architect and developer responsible for Peachtree Center, as well as most of the big buildings surrounding it, is asking Sandy Springs for a building variance so he can build a 70-foot-tall, 27,500-square-foot home at 5193 Northside Drive.
City ordinance caps the heights of single-family homes at 40 feet. Portman will be at Sandy Springs City Hall on Thursday at 7 p.m. where he will argue that rules made for single-family homes shouldn't necessarily apply to palaces.
No word yet on whether Portman's new home will be connected to nearby buildings via elevated, see-through walkways.
Funny and interesting. Thanks.
