Beltline seeks bench designs

Atlanta BeltLine Inc. is seeking proposals from artists, craftsmen, students, and designers in developing original designs for Atlanta BeltLine Benches.

Design/build proposals from manufacturers are also welcome.

The objective is to develop a bench type that uses local (within 250 miles) materials (wood, stone, and or locally fabricated metal). The style of the bench should be clearly recognizable, cost effective to manufacture, and easy to maintain.

Benches may be required in various quantities over the next 20 years. The first orders will be for the Eastside Trail, Eastside Trail Extension, Northside Trail, Southwest Connector Trail and Westside Trail.

Proposals due 3 p.m. Jan. 23.
