Blueprints for Successful Communities: Westside Studio
MetadataShow full item record
The Georgia Conservancy and the Georgia Institute of Technology’s College of Architecture have partnered to undertake a “Blueprints for Successful Communities” study for the Westside of the City of Atlanta. The Blueprints study area followed the boundaries defined by Atlanta BeltLine Inc. in conjunction with its BeltLine planning process. This area covers almost one quarter of the City of Atlanta, with the approximate physical boundaries of Northside Drive to the east, Interstate 20 to the south, the city limits to the west and Marietta Boulevard to the north. This area includes all or portions of Neighborhood Planning Units D, G, H, I, J, K, L and T. Westside neighborhood members and community leaders were central to Blueprints planning process and helped to identify the assets and challenges and community visions for the Westside. This process included a series of community meetings as well as an all-day urban design charrette with students in Georgia Tech planning and architecture studios.
