Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel, Atlanta
Model completed in 2011
About this creation
This model is approximately 1/650th scale, similar to my other skyscrapers.

11 Photos available on Brickshelf.com

I had previously built the Detroit Renaissance Center and R.H. had built The Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles, so I decided it was time to finish up architect John Portmanís 1970ís tubular architectural trilogy with the Westin Peachtree Plaza.

The 73 story Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel was the tallest hotel in the world when it opened in 1977 and the tallest building in Atlanta. The upper floors of the tower features a revolving restaurant and the roof houses a broadcast antenna.





A side profile of the building. The backside has no detailing, as that wall is shared with a neighboring building.







These views show some of the detailing around the base. Due to the small size of the model I used thin wall panels, rather than bulky plates and bricks, for many of the free surface edges.

Quoting david drake beautiful bldg. I've been in the revolving restaurant. Great Build. Still trying to figure out what material you used for the cylindrical portion. It looks like trans black glass with black tiles inside
They are trans-black quarter cylinders. Inside, is some structure that allows me to put 1x1 trans-clear plates on black 1x6 tiles beneath the cylinders.
