The new Fourth Ward district in Atlanta is an ongoing revitalization project just NE of downtown. The area has been developing into a unique and walkable residential and park environment.
This project is sited on a 2.4-acre elevated corner with exciting downtown views and the ability to form a strong street presence along 3 sides of the site. We activated the street with stepped, high-bay street-accessible apartments using tactile materials to create a more human scale, and we created a high corner to take advantage of the views while reducing the height along the south elevation to allow more sunlight into the interior common courtyard. It is a unique site that deserved an innovative response.
