Athens Church Greenspace Project

Project Description

The Athens Church Greenspace Project is a 3-acre site attached to a mixed-use
development complex. This new private park is adjacent to the church.
This project required the demolition of a parking lot and a portion of one of
the outlining commercial structures that were no longer in use to construct
the community park. The park will feature a plaza area and a small amphitheater
to enhance social gatherings for the local congregation. This park
will also feature a good number of bicycle parking spaces to encourage
alternative commuting options for nearby residents.

W&A provided a wide range of civil services for this project including due
diligence design and permitting services. The overall master site plans that
were furnished included grading plans, ES&PC Plan design, stormwater
and drainage design, and utility design. Additionally, surveying services
and landscape architecture services were also delivered. The W&A landscape
architecture team provided a full landscape plan for the site that
encompassed planting design, selection, and a planting schedule.
