Centennial Walk is a new mixed-use development in the heart of east Roswell, Georgia. Within its 27 acres are planned 159,900 square feet of retail, outparcel commercial, and office, with 167 residential units made up of condominiums and townhomes at 6 units to the acre. The project was allowed a higher residential density by the City in part by setting aside 41 percent of the project for greenspace and hiding parking below ground, where grades would allow. A design concept that both the developer and the surrounding neighborhoods favored was to create a main street, a center to the development, where shops and offices fronted sidewalks and streets with on-street parking and all terminated by strong architecture fronting a roundabout with a fountain.
TSW has been the design lead for the entire 27-acre master plan, greenspace design, Roswell Historic Overlay Compliance, and the architecture of the Main Street Buildings, which comprises the first phase. The Main Street commercial buildings are a unique blend of one, two-story and three-story retail type buildings, some on grade and some split levels with entrances from both the parking lots and the Main Street. The building styling hearkens back to traditional forms found in Roswell but with a modern interpretation.
