Mayor Kasim Reed alsong with Commissioner Tim Keane, Department of City Planning Ryan Gravel, Project Manager, Atlanta City Design Oscar Harris, Notable Atlanta Architect and the Atlanta Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects to release the Atlanta City Design 10 a.m. Sept 6. at Atlanta City Studio, 2311 Cascade Road, SW,


The Department of City Planning works to enable high quality, sustainable and equitable growth and development in Atlanta, and initiated the Atlanta City Design in January 2016. The design envisions what Atlanta could look like decades from now. It will help guide future decisions on development as our city looks to accommodate a much larger population.

The Atlanta City Design was created by residents, visitors, design professionals and curious urbanists who met at the Atlanta City Studio, the City of Atlanta’s first urban design pop-up serving as an incubator, workspace and meeting place to share ideas and development plans.

For those wishing to attend the event, parking is available along Cascade Road and next door at 2329 Cascade Road. SW.
