Redevelopment plan for abandoned hospital site
Opportunity to create a mixed-use, technology center close to downtown
The site, located in the northwest portion of the City of Rome, Georgia, was first established as Battey General Hospital in 1945. Up until the 1970s, it served as a military hospital. Today, the campus’ 66 structures, surface streets, parking lots, open space, and sidewalk infrastructure sit abandoned. The site is currently closed to the public and is kept up by a maintenance staff funded by the State of Georgia. TSW was recently retained by the City of Rome to explore realistic design concepts and development scenarios for the approximately 130-acre site.
