TK Elevator completes installation of more than 30 elevators in all three towers at Midtown Union in Midtown Atlanta


  • Midtown Union includes an office tower, residential tower and hotel spanning nearly one full city block.
  • The Class-AA office building will feature TK Elevator’s industry-leading MAX and AGILE digital technologies offering a faster, touch-free elevator ride to the office.


Atlanta, Georgia, July 14, 2022 – TK Elevator has completed installation of 31 elevators at Midtown Union, the award-winning, mixed-use development in Midtown Atlanta. The installation includes the Class-AA office tower, the Mira at Midtown Union residential tower, the Kimpton Midtown Atlanta Hotel as well as the parking garage.

The office component of the transformative mixed-use development is being developed by MetLife Investment Management and Granite Properties. The residential building is being developed by MetLife Investment Management and StreetLights Residential. The hotel is being developed by MetLife Investment Management and AMS Hospitality.

Designed by Cooper Carry, the development spans nearly one full city block and is steps from Midtown Atlanta’s Arts district. Construction on the three towers began in 2019 with Brasfield & Gorrie serving as the general contractor for the project. The project will be delivered in Q3 2022.

“Midtown Union exemplifies what makes Atlanta so special and we are thrilled to support this incredible project,” said Kevin Lavallee, CEO BU North America and Group COO Field.

The elevators at Midtown Union feature regenerative drive technology, putting energy back into the building in alignment with Granite Properties’ mission to create the most sustainable buildings possible. Regenerative drives can reduce the energy consumed by building transportation systems by up to 70%.

Midtown Union’s 26-story, 612,000-square-foot office tower will also feature the latest in touchless and digital elevator technologies, including AGILE Destination Dispatch. The intelligent dispatching system includes kiosks grouping passengers based on similar destinations, which leads to less crowding, fewer stops, and shorter travel times. The office tower, which is already more than 50-percent leased to date, will also feature AGILE mobile, allowing customers to operate an elevator via their smartphone or wearable device. This technology helps to avoid elevator traffic congestion as well as physical interaction with elevator surfaces, buttons and handrails.

The Midtown Union office tower is pursuing LEED Silver and Fitwel certifications. It offers a wide range of amenities, including an airy, multi-level hospitality lobby, and a 12,000-square-foot landscaped outdoor amenity terrace on the 8th floor. The amenity terrace will connect to a fitness center, boardroom, conference meeting facilities and a customer lounge. Innovative features include a parking guidance system, contactless smart card access throughout the building, hands-free entry doors, and clean air technology in the building’s HVAC system.

“Midtown Union’s office tower will offer a sustainable and wellness-focused workspace through the highest quality of design and innovative amenities. The destination dispatch elevators and AGILE mobile app will allow our customers a quick, touch-free ride to their desired floor. Combined with our smart parking solution and contactless access throughout the building, it will allow our customers a seamless, touchless experience from the garage to their office,” said John Robbins, Senior Managing Director, Granite Properties.

TK Elevator will also utilize its groundbreaking MAX technology and provide top-of-the-line service support for all three towers. The IoT predictive maintenance solution not only empowers technicians to remotely diagnose potential issues, but also provides building data allowing property managers to run their facilities more efficiently.
