We’re thrilled to share that Sarah McColley, one of our talented team members at TSW, played a key role in securing a grant for Noble Clay Fitness. Sarah’s expertise and dedication to creating sustainable, vibrant communities were essential in researching, writing, and assembling the Stadium Neighborhood Trust Fund grant application.
Thanks to Sarah’s hard work and the dedication of the team at Noble Clay Fitness, the organization was awarded an impressive $150,000 in May 2021. This grant will enable Noble Clay Fitness to expand their non-profit gym model, providing even more opportunities for individuals in the community to access affordable, high-quality fitness resources.
At TSW, we’re proud to have team members like Sarah who are committed to making a positive impact in the communities we serve. We look forward to continuing to partner with organizations like Noble Clay Fitness to create a more sustainable, equitable future for all.

TSW Landscape Architecture’s Featured Project
Juniper Complete Street Project
As part of a major streetscaping project in Midtown Atlanta, TSW was retained by Midtown Alliance to improve the aesthetics and function of Juniper Street. This $5 million project is a significant step forward for Midtown’s commitment to providing a better environment for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders to nearby Midtown and North Avenue MARTA Stations.
The Juniper Complete Street Project begins at 14th Street and continues to Ponce de Leon Avenue. TSW’s design for the project aims to keep two lanes of one-way travel and incorporates on-street parking and a partially planted median as a buffer to separate the proposed cycle track from vehicular traffic. New trees, shrubs and more spacious sidewalks will be added to enhance the pedestrian experience. Additional planters, benches, bike racks and trash receptacles will tie the street together visually and make it much more appealing and safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
