Excerpted from the Spring 2017 AIANYS Quarterly

Should there be a building? What purpose will it serve? How will it advance the vision of an urban or academic community? How will it transform and redefine its context? A traditional design process often begins after these questions have been answered and a site has been selected – yet much of the impact of a new building lies in the essential qualities of what, where, and why.

The reinvention of Colony Square – Atlanta’s first mixed-use development – is scheduled to break ground October 10th. The iconic mid-century modern complex, originally constructed in the early 1970s, is undergoing transformation into a vibrant commercial, retail, residential and cultural destination in the heart of Midtown.

The renovated Hahne & Company Building has received a Merit Award in Preservation from the AIA New Jersey Design Awards program.
