Renaissance Plaza was a proposed 170,000 square foot class A office building to be located on property owned by Frank Kovach on the northeast corner of 20th Street and Highland Avenue near Five Points South.

The proposed building, which was to have been 14 stories tall with retail on the ground floor was designed by Cooper Carry & Associates of Atlanta. A rendering showing a pink stone and glass tower with a curving facade was posted on the site.

In 1990, after a two-year-long marketing effort failed to secure a primary tenant, the plans were abandoned and the property sold. Kovach moved to Florida shortly afterwards.

A Ruby Tuesday's restaurant currently occupies the site.
