mixed use development
ethos classical school
East Point, Georgia
Ethos Classical School is a tuition free elementary school charter in 2019. The main building was renovated from a old church into a modern learning environment including a courtyard space.
In Phase 1, CWA provided signage, building, and courtyard modern landscape design. In Phase 2 with the addition of new classroom trailers, we created temporary flexible playground designs using low budget features. CWA is currently working on Phase 3, building expansion providing buffer revegetation and nature based learning space designs.
Square at Glen iris
Old Fourth Ward, Atlanta, Georgia
The Square at Glen Iris is a 4 building townhome community that is located on an entire block between Glen Iris and Ralph McGill Boulevard. The urban industrial style buildings are located within the popular Old Fourth Ward area with walkable distance to popular destinations like Ponce City Market and North Highlands area.
CWA designed the streetscape in compliance with City of Atlanta standards including sidewalk, site furniture zones, and street trees.
Midtown Atlanta, Georgia
Westchester Square is a 23 unit townhome community in the heart of Midtown in need of new traffic calming devices for truck and automobile traffic as well as new asphalt roadways.
CWA joined forces with WFS Construction to offer design and installation project management. Over the course of 2 years, we held extensive homeowner outreach meetings, designed the traffic calming devices that are firetruck rated and pervious, permitted with the City of Atlanta, acted as the client advocate in the bidding process, provided construction administration and project management to ensure the construction was installed per drawings.
Dunwoody Green was awarded the 2013 Georgia Planning Award for Implementation. Once a casualty of the recession, the barren site with existing grid-like roads destined for 300+quadaplex units blossomed into a vibrant low impact mixed used development including commercial, grand central park for town events, community playground, and residential homes with public bike and pedestrian connectivity.
CWA assisted with the land planning, streetscape and tree program, bike and pedestrian connectivity, and individual landscape designs for each home.
