Terminus

Atlanta, Georgia

Conceived of as a 24-hour mixed-use neighborhood and urban center, the high-density, vertical development of Terminus expresses the rapid growth of midtown and increasing density of Atlanta. Three chiseled and patterned forms occupy a full block in the Buckhead district. The expansive complex is made airy and accessible with predominantly clear glass cladding, multiple entryways, interior streets and courtyards, and a pedestrian level plaza devoted to shops and restaurants. Pocket parks, roof gardens and plazas bring life to the street level with gathering places for socializing and community events.

The project brought publicly accessible pedestrian-level activity and commerce to the neighborhood while reinforcing the established city grid. Its success has attracted other high-density developments to the area to today make Terminus part of an 24/7 environment that mixes living, working and socializing.
