280 Elizabeth Street Atlanta, Georgia

Located just beyond Freedom Parkway, this project consists of a high-density, mixed-use development on a sensitive urban site. Occupying the last large undeveloped land tract in the historic Inman Park neighborhood, the plan responds to a rich existing neighborhood context. A balance of mixed uses and green space will activate and complement this already vibrant area.

The development will include retail & other commercial spaces, residential apartments, significant open space improvements and a parking structure. Based on the fundamental intentions of the Inman Park Historic District, the concept reflects both appropriate spatial relationships between buildings and to the street. The design is compatible with present scale, architectural characteristics and character of this subarea, and will blend harmoniously with its context.

The importance of parks and open space, both internal and external to the development is apparent, and encroachment of commercial areas into the historic residential district is avoided. The intent is for an aesthetic, diversified urban environment where people can live, work and play. The design encourages pedestrians to flow through the design and experience its landscaped outdoor spaces for active and passive enjoyment. This is a very customized approach to a sensitive site that will help connect, support and enhance this neighborhood.
