The developers of the proposed “Ashby high-rise” and their architects have been sued in federal court over the tower’s design.

Dallas-based Humphreys & Partners Architects filed suit against Buckhead Investment Partners and EDI Architecture, alleging the design for the recently revived project at 1717 Bissonnet infringes on the plaintiff’s copyrights for a similar project in Minneapolis called Grant Park.

Humphreys is seeking actual damages, including lost profits and attorneys fees. The company is also asking for an injunction against the construction of the project.

The defendants have not yet returned a message asking for comment.

UPDATE: Buckhead’s Matthew Morgan said the lawsuit will not slow down the project. The design, he said, “represents the original work product by us and our architects.” Morgan said the design inspiration was Lovett Hall at Rice University.
