Call To Charities: Phipps Plaza To Donate Grand Chandelier As Part Of Renovation Project


Atlanta’s premiere luxury shopping destination to light up 2015 with stunning new fixture

ATLANTA, January 15, 2015 — Phipps Plaza, the Southeast’s top luxury shopping destination located in the heart of Atlanta’s fashionable Buckhead district, is shedding light on an upcoming chandelier removal and installation project as part of its extensive renovation.

On Tuesday, January 6, the former grand chandelier which has hung in the mall’s Court of the South since 1992 was removed to make way for a new lighting installation -- a stunning sixteen-feet wide by 7-feet tall chandelier composed of an illuminated core, surrounded by 88 stainless steel spears and featuring over 2,600 acrylic spheres throughout the fixture. Inspired by the chandeliers in New York City’s Metropolitan Opera and the Chicago Waldorf Astoria Hotel, this custom LED lighting enhancement will complement Phipps Plaza’s other recent interior makeovers, providing the property with a fresh new look and feel.


Phipps Plaza is offering to gift the grand chandelier to a local philanthropic organization that can use the fixture either in its current space or to generate revenue in upcoming fundraising efforts.  The ornate light fixture, which was installed as part of the mall’s renovation in 1992, is valued at $25,000 and hangs 10-feet wide by 12-feet tall. Finished in dark bronze, the elegant, antique chandelier features a dazzling crystal jewel dome that beautifully catches and reflects light. 

Interested Atlanta-area 501(c)3 non-profit organizations are invited to apply to receive the chandelier by sending relevant background information, contact information and a letter explaining the organization’s desire for the chandelier to Leslie Bland at Phipps Plaza (lbland@simon.com) by February 28, 2015. For more information, please call (404)261-7910.

 

Phipps Plaza will welcome the new, updated chandelier as part of the overall enhancements that are taking place during the mall’s renovation project. These updates included an extensive interior makeover, upgraded energy-efficient LED lighting, new interior colors with warm wood accents and updated railings, comfortable lounging areas with Wi-Fi connectivity and device chargers, upgraded restrooms, and the installation of a hotel-like concierge customer service center. Major improvements to the mall’s parking include new lighting, new flooring and automatic doors to welcome customers.
