Neighborhood Re-building in Atlanta

Dover, Kohl & Partners along with a multi-disciplinary team, created a detailed master plan for the neighborhood of Pittsburgh, in southwest Atlanta. The Pittsburgh neighborhood was among the hardest hit in the foreclosure crisis that unfolded across the United States. Ideas from the community were synthesized into the master plan, which focused on re-building a neighborhood that is complete and walkable; turning vacant and abandoned properties into affordable housing to enable a mix of incomes and lifestyles in the same neighborhood. Additional goals include showcasing and honoring the community heritage and identity; creating a safer community with programs to assist residents and businesses; and creating community green spaces.
