The City of Woodstock is a historic community located in south Cherokee County, Georgia, approximately 30 miles north of Atlanta. The City encouraged Hedgewood Properties to design a mixed-use neighborhood that would meet the goals of their 2002 Atlanta Regional Commission Livable Centers Initiative Study of strengthening their downtown without compromising the historic character. With this charge and an understanding of the need for commercial revitalization, TSW designed a natural extension of the city’s fabric that complements and provides a variety of commercial and residential choices in an area of intense urban sprawl.
TSW was responsible for both planning and architectural improvements. TSW’s Architectural Studio designed the 6-story, 168,000 SF, 400’ long signature building for the development. The structure has some 28,000 SF of retail with four floors of condominium homes above and a sub-terrain parking level. The condominiums are built with wood construction and are separated into a North and South Condominium Building. To break up the 400’ long structure, seven facades were designed to reflect the traditional streetscape of historic downtown Woodstock. The building has created a signature backdrop for the City of Woodstock and has reached the iconic status as the place to live, work, and play.
