Avondale Estates Downtown Urban Design Study
Avondale Estates, GA
In support of the ratification of a new street grid and a rezoning process, the City of Avondale Estates hired Lord Aeck Sargent to develop an Urban Design Framework for its Downtown core.
This study focused on the physical parameters of the public and private realm to ensure that its development would be in harmony with the existing sense of place and the desired future scale of Downtown. Utilizing 2D and 3D modeling, the study addressed street grading, street character, development mass and scale, and potential development scenarios to help articulate the urban design framework and possibilities in a highly graphic and understandable manner.
