Armour Yards is one of the first adaptive reuse of warehouse buildings to become creative office space. Located in the City’s Beltline Overlay District, the redevelopment requires Atlanta SAP approval prior to a Land Disturbance Permit.
At 42,000 s.f., 225 Ottley was the first completed in this redevelopment and was 100% leased before construction was complete. 165 Ottley used an innovative approach to minimize land disturbance. To meet the City zoning requirements, a portion of the existing warehouse slab was used for parking. Keeping the added/replaced impervious area to under 5,000 s.f. did not require stormwater detention; we were able to provide retention using bio-retention areas.
120 Ottley converted a 45,750 s.f. warehouse into office, related retail, and restaurant space. The team worked with the developer to keep the undisturbed space to under 35% of the total property, saving money on stormwater management requirements. Detention and retention volumes for the disturbed area only are provided by a chamber system under the new parking lot addition. 255 Ottley is the largest of the buildings adds office and retail space to the creative office space in the Sweetwater Design District.
The Brunswick is a live/work community, located adjacent to Lillian Webb Park. The five-story mid-rise is designed to complement the historic neighborhood. The 184-unit, 195,560 s.f. development will have a 280-space parking deck for residents and the public, plus a luxury pool deck, hammock grove, and fire pits. This Public-Private Partnership with the City of Norcross and the developer provided an opportunity for a collaborative approach on stormwater management facility and utilities for the project. Our team designed a system that also managed the stormwater for the adjacent City/County Library. Additionally, we managed over 20-feet of elevation change across the frontage, piped and re-routed state waters and rerouted park sewer, managed contaminated groundwater, and captured and reroute offsite water to minimize our stormwater retention.
The redevelopment of the existing grocery into a 12-story, mixed‐use development, including office, restaurant, and flagship grocery. The majority of landscape and hardscape improvements are over-structure with multiple amenity decks, including a 30,000 s.f. green roof. The brand new 60,000 s.f. Kroger grocery store sits below 360,000 s.f. of new office space. Engaged dynamically with the Atlanta Beltline, the development includes an inviting bosque and opportunities for gathering for all Beltline patrons. The pocket park cuts through the center of the building connecting the main grocery parking lot with the Beltline.
