Locating Planned Projects
A major element of the planning effort was to assist the university in locating projects that were either already planned or in preliminary stages of conception. This list of projects accounts for approximately 4.1 million GSF of the identified campus need over the next 10 years. (See Figure 5.6)
The projects include:
The Piedmont-Ellis Housing project is a significant step, representing the university’s commitment to providing a meaningful on-campus experience for its students. It illustrates the creative measures the university is willing to take. The greyfield site, once the prominent location of Atlanta’s last downtown auto dealer, establishes a new corner for the Georgia State campus. The project, a development effort by the University Foundation, sets a new standard for student life and urban design significance by creating a center of activity for 2,000 residents.
