Echo Street West
Inspired by Atlanta's Industrial Fabric
RIOS is working with Lincoln Property Company on the development of an 18-acre mixed-use residential and commercial center for the Echo Street West project in West Midtown, Atlanta. The rich history of industrial development and railway impact on the site is a foundation for creating a unique place that builds on new city-wide interventions such as the Beltline extension, the West Midtown revitalization, and the Georgia Tech expansion.
The design envisions a new Westside mixed-use district that is inspired by the industrial fabric along the former Kudzu Line that ran through the site, while employing a combination of building scale and programmatic mix to contextualize the existing urban nature of the different adjacent communities. This strategy will create a plan that is natural, respectful, and inventive in its site response.
