East Atlanta Village is the center of a diverse community that includes many different residents, restaurants, bars and specialty retailers. At the historic core of the Village, small-scale business are located along Flat Shoals Avenue from Glenwood Avenue to Moreland Avenue. The commercial area has experienced a revitalization as many new residents have moved into the surrounding neighborhoods.
As part of an effort to calm traffic, improve the pedestrian environment, and reduce visual clutter, TSW was retained to develop a streetscape plan that creates a new vision for the Village. While conducting workshops with the neighborhood residents and business owners, TSW created the master plan design with on-street parking, street trees, pedestrian lighting, improved pedestrian crossings, large sidewalks, gateway features, and intersection realignments. The plan reflects the diversity of the adjacent neighborhoods and enhances the streetscape environment, further enlivening the revitalization of the area.
