Breedlove Land Planning is excited to see the lower courtyard improvements at the Georgia Tech North Avenue Apartments under construction. Originally built as athlete housing for the 1996 Olympics, the open space between these four student housing buildings needed re-programming and refreshment. Breedlove Land Planning developed a design to reactivate this space by creating new, sinuous pedestrian walkways that frame a new synthetic turf oval. Flanking the outside edges of the oval are a series of benches, grilling areas and outdoor seating. A new grove of hammocks was designed, nestled in shade, with electrical hookups to allow students to use devices for learning or relaxation. We look forward to seeing the finished installation in mid-September.
