Best In Atlanta Real Estate Awards – Atlanta Business Chronicle

The Thrive Sweet Auburn Project is one the three finalists in the Best In Residential category of the Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards.

The Thrive Sweet Auburn development brings 117 units of mixed affordable and supportive housing with 16,000 sf of co-working and office space to the historic Sweet Auburn district of Downtown Atlanta.  The project is a partnership between GVSA by Mercy Housing, one of the nation’s largest affordable housing developers. Mercy teamed with Project Community Connections, an outreach organization specializing in the permanent rehousing of families experiencing homelessness, to develop a solution to both the lack of cost-effective housing in the downtown area and to help families burdened by homelessness to achieve self-sufficiency.  The exterior design brings a distinctive character to the area with a mindfulness of the district’s history through its careful use and integration of materials and massing.  The interior design and layout of the spaces have beed developed to foster a sense of community by physically linking the new home office of PCCI with supportive housing above to form a codified bond between the residents and the supportive office.  Additional co-working space on site, the relationship between residence and productivity is further synergized through the creation of a wholistic live/work solution.

Savannah’s Enmarket Arena Now Open

The Enmarket Arena in Savannah, Georgia, is now open and is being hailed as the largest public works project in the city’s history. This new venue, which officially opened on February 5th, is expected to bring a wide range of music, sports, and entertainment experiences to Southern Georgia. The opening ceremony, which included a community day and ribbon-cutting event, attracted hundreds of attendees.

One of the architectural firms involved in the design of the Enmarket Arena is Goode Van Slyke Architecture, which is based in Atlanta. GVSA served as an associate architect on the project, working alongside the design lead firm Perkins&Will. Their contributions to the project included designing various aspects of the building, including non-public areas like operations offices and visitor lockers, as well as many of the public areas located on the concourse and overlook levels. This collaboration between architectural firms has resulted in the creation of a significant new entertainment and sports venue for the Savannah community.

Atlanta Intown, a news outlet covering the city’s intown neighborhoods, profiled GVSA high-rise Seven88 in its July issue. The Perspectives in Architecture column by Melody Harclerode was titled: Firm Reaches New Heights with Skyscraper. It examines the history of skyscrapers in the U.S. and Atlanta, noting that luxury condo Seven88 West Midtown is Atlanta’s first commercial skyscraper designed by a Black-owned architectural firm.

It also illustrates the project’s uniqueness in other ways as well. “Two outdoor amenity decks with a saltwater pool and whirlpool pool spa, yoga lawn, and dog spa offer contemporary, resort-style relaxation for condo owners and visitors,” Harclerode wrote. The column also illustrates the firm’s versatility with mentions of other high-profile projects.
