Dykon paves the way

Weekend implosion clears path for new Invesco HQ.

Work on the future home of Invesco’s headquarters started this weekend — with a bang.

A five-storey building, originally developed more than 60 years ago, was imploded to make room for the new 26-storey tower that Atlanta-based Invesco Ltd will occupy.

The demolition of 1330 West Peachtree was a “key milestone” in preparation for the first phase of Midtown Union, the development team said. The Midtown Union project is expected to be completed in 2022.
