PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This ambitious mixed-use redevelopment, spearheaded by Big Bethel AME Church’s economic development initiative, Project Nehemiah, occupies a full city block of Atlanta’s revered Martin Luther King, Jr. Landmark District. The $45 million project is helping to return the commercial corridor to its former popular state with an attractive new stretch of condominium residences, shops and small businesses. Working closely with community leaders and the Atlanta Urban Design Coalition, the design team’s solution strikes a positive balance of historic preservation of existing retail buildings and economic viability with the new residential, office and retail components. For successfully achieving these objectives, the project was recently recognized with the AIA’s South Atlantic Region 2009 Honor Award for Design Excellence. The project includes 160 condominium units, 30,000 s.f. of retail, and a 6-level, 400-car internal parking deck with secure access for its residents.
