Duluth’s Parsons Alley recently received the ULI Atlanta District Council Development of Excellence Award. TSW developed the concept plan and landscape architecture construction documents for the project.
Designed as a re-birth of Duluth’s historic downtown, Parsons Alley pays homage to Duluth’s local flare by incorporating new construction with preservation and adaptive reuse. With over 30,000 SF of carefully selected shops and restaurants, the project anchors Duluth’s new Village Green, a plaza that gathers the local community through festivals, concerts, and public art.
Parsons Alley helps complete downtown Duluth as a great, walkable community and represents the next generation of Atlanta’s walkable town centers. The development was the result of a public and private collaboration that embraces the history of the city and counterbalances with future economic and demographic trends. It is a destination that reflects the local heritage and Duluth’s future.
As part of the City of Duluth’s plan to redevelop its downtown, Parsons Alley, is home to Dreamland Barbecue, Simply Done Donuts, Personify and The Chocolaterie Luxury Chocolates. Good Word Brew Pub, Noona Korean restaurant and Maple Street Biscuit Company will be opening soon.
