Monthly Projects Update: October 6, 2021
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.
Currently Under Construction
1. Midtown Alliance's contractor began construction of the Peachtree Street at Peachtree Place Public Plaza on 8/30/2021. To accomplish the work, Peachtree Place is currently closed to vehicle thru traffic from Crescent Avenue to Peachtree Street for up to 90 days. The adjacent businesses remain open and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout construction. Construction is expected to be active for 6 months, and be substantially complete by March 2022, weather permitting.
Work currently underway is focused in the site area west of Peachtree Street. Demolition has been completed and installation of new granite curbs is currently underway. Check back here for specific biweekly construction updates.
2. Construction began in June 2021 for improvements and hardscape and landscape maintenance on the Southwest Corner of the 15th Street Arts District Plaza. Maintenance and other improvements will also be performed on the Southeast Corner of the Plaza, starting in late September. Weather permitting, construction on both corners is anticipated to be substantially complete by end of October 2021.
3. Construction of Sidewalk Improvements continues in several areas of the Midtown Improvement District. Work includes replacing concrete, resetting pavers, new curb and ADA ramp upgrades, and other sidewalk repairs to help maintain and improve pedestrian mobility in Midtown. See a list of past work completed by the Sidewalk Improvements Annual Program here.
