Other Central City
Technology Square is a two-block-long complex of five four- to six-story buildings on eight acres (3.2 hectares) in the Midtown neighborhood of Atlanta developed by the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Although the structures maintain an outward focus on Midtown’s major streets (West Peachtree and Fifth streets, NW), the project also includes inner plazas and courtyards. The anchor tenant of the $180 million project is Georgia Tech’s College of Management, housed in a LEED-certified building. Also on site are continuing education facilities, a 250-room hotel, a 1,500-space parking garage, and 11 shops Including a campus bookstore managed by Barnes & Noble. Designed to look like a trolley, a shuttle runs along Fifth Street over 12 lanes of freeway, moving students to and from the main 450-acre (182.1-hectare) Georgia Tech campus. Technology Square is an example of university-sponsored development that has helped transform a run-down neighborhood into a vibrant district.
