Midtown Pocket Parks
As a part of our long-standing partnership with the Midtown Alliance, Lord Aeck Sargent has provided on-call design and construction services on several signature parks in Midtown, including the temporary park at Peachtree and 10th streets, Arts Center Plaza, Fox Triangle Plaza and the 18th Street pocket park.
Design approaches for each space were contextually responsive, focused on creating “people places” in formerly uninhabitable locations. Each park seeks to provide opportunities for seating, casual activity and improving the visual environment within Midtown. While the Arts Center Plaza – in collaboration with EDAW – creates a lasting amenity and spans all four corners of the intersection of Peachtree and 15th streets, the 10th Street and 18th Street parks were specifically envisioned as tactical, temporary interventions serving as placeholders until future development is realized.
