City of Suwanee
Town Center West Park Master Plan
In the spring of 2016, the rapidly growing City of Suwanee in Metro Atlanta hired Lord Aeck Sargent, along with a team of designers and engineers, to collaborate on the master planning of Town Center West.
The project focused on creating a new 25-acre park that would serve as an extension of the City’s very successful Town Center Park. A robust public engagement process and an integrated design partnership, which included Clark Patterson Lee and jB+a, led to the creation of a dynamic park that capitalizes on the site’s varied topography, providing a rich layering of pedestrian spaces and connections.
Features include a large amenity terrace, a gently sloped open event lawn, a quarter-acre pond and a series of outdoor rooms framed by a carefully-preserved tree canopy. The design is held together by a central pedestrian bridge that connects the Town Center to the amenity terrace while providing engaging views of the entire park. Since its completion, the master plan has been adopted by the Suwanee City Council and will soon begin the next stages of development.
