7:30 am - 9:00 am
Register now for September’s Principals Roundtable with DaVinci Development Collaborative’s Managing Principal John Goff and Senior Principal, Development David Scott. This presentation offers 1 AIA LU.
Founded by John in 2014, DaVinci Development Collaborative is a multidisciplinary firm dedicated to enhancing cities and communities by delivering on projects that embody the spirit and images of their citizens.
During the presentation, the principals will review two big projects in our community, The Stitch and FlatironCity:
The Stitch is a transformative project helping reimagine part of Atlanta that has been seen as an eyesore and a barrier. The idea is to “cap” the Connector by constructing a platform over the highway, extending from the Civic Center MARTA Station at West Peachtree Street to Piedmont Avenue. This new space would be used to create park space and foster new development.
- Infrastructure as a tool to impact the urban environment
- Collaboration of siloed Agencies around a common goal to create impact
- Designing a process for stakeholder engagement
- Leveraging of transit to stimulate development
Downtown Atlanta’s 120-year-old Flatiron Building opened in 1897 and is the city’s oldest standing skyscraper. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building is staying true to the entrepreneurial spirit of the building’s original occupants. The Flatiron Building, ‘FlatironCity,’ is a melting pot for entrepreneurs and corporations. The refurbished office building houses a diverse tenant base including the WEI an incubator for women founded companies and B2B start-ups who are increasing economic productivity in the airlines, logistics, chemical/refinery, digital advertising and music industries.
