Under Construction

Monthly Projects Update:  January 5, 2023

Each month, we provide a construction update on our current Capital Improvement projects. See what's happening as we give you more to love about Midtown.

The new Commercial Row Commons plaza at Peachtree Street and Peachtree Place features a flexible-use space, landscaping, seating, intersection realignment, lighting and public art.


Currently Under Construction

1.  Peachtree Street at Peachtree Place Public Plaza (pictured above) construction was substantially complete in late 2022.  The plaza at Commercial Row Commons officially opened in August with a dedication by the City and a community launch party to celebrate the new space.  In November, trees and plants were replaced as needed.  The few remaining punch list items will be addressed as permitted by weather and material and labor availability, followed by project close out in early 2023.


 

2.  Midtown Art Walk.  Construction mobilized in January 2022 on the next phase of Art Walk (pictured above) on Peachtree Walk between 10th Street and 11th Street and is currently about 45% complete.  Progress to-date includes relocation of the waterline and installation of new stormwater piping and structures within the Peachtree Walk roadway; removal of trees and demolition in other areas to make way for construction of site improvements.  New sidewalks, bollards and landscape planter beds have been installed on the east and west sides of Peachtreee Walk.  The lower driveway to Federal Reserve Bank was reconstructed with new drainage modifications.  In December the new granite curb line, concrete pedestrian bulbout with bollards, sidewalks, and driveway to the Federal Reserve Bank were constructed at the southeast corner of 11th Street and Peachtree Walk. 

Work is currently focused on demo, excavation, grading, and installation of the new granite curb line to frame the new pedestrian bulbout on the southwest corner of the 11th Street intersection.  Demo has also begun in the lower pedestrian plaza between the Federal Reserve Bank and 10 10th Street office building excavating for new landscape planters and associated conduits and drainage.

 

3.  Construction of enhancements to the 10th Street Temporary Park (pictured above) recently finished and was capped off with a kickoff "Tailgate" event November 12th Since August crews worked to create a series of 3 outdoor rooms for different uses including a fenced dog park, play area and activity zone for lawn games.  The park is open for use while punch list items are completed in the coming weeks.
