Downtown  Atlanta is undergoing a transformation, in part, due to the growth of Georgia State University.  GSU announced today that they will raze an 80 year old parking garage-turned-classroom building to make way for an greenway park in the center of its urban campus.  The new lawn will be in sight of Woodruff Park (1973), Hurt Park (1939), and the new Atlanta Streetcar from Edgewood Avenue. The campus is known to be in a previously all-concrete area with bridges and ramps crossing streets.

Tomorrow, GSU breaks ground on their new 200,000 square foot College of Law, between the Georgia-Pacific tower and the Candler Building– where Club Velvet was previously located.  The renderings look appealing: modernist glass and steel, slightly cubist massings with good pedestrian scale at street level.  The sustainable building is scheduled to open Fall 2015.
