Physical Improvements

We have a 40-year reputation for getting things done in Midtown Atlanta.

Improving the way people experience Midtown at street-level is the catalyst to attract and retain high-quality talent and investment in Midtown and our city. 

What sets our organization apart in the place management industry is that we are entrusted by the Midtown Improvement District and City, Regional and State policy partners to implement physical improvements in the public right-of-way. This project work takes many forms, ranging from multi-year, multi-million dollar transportation corridor enhancements to park and plaza upgrades and temporary public art installations. 

Our team includes seven staffers who work full-time on:

  • Implementing transportation improvements to increase travel choices and the efficiency of Midtown’s multi-modal network
  • Securing grants and building public improvement projects such as streetscapes, parks and plazas
  • Designing, activating and programming public spaces

All of this work happens in close coordination with our partners and the community we serve. And sometimes it can take many years to move a complicated project through the approval process before we put a shovel in the ground. Our role is to keep pushing to deliver quality projects that make the district safer, greener, more navigable, more vibrant and where people want to be.
