Hines, which acquired the retail core of Atlantic Station in 2015 along with an investment company, chose Atlanta-based landscape architecture firm HGOR for the project. HGOR has worked on projects such as The Battery at SunTrust Park and Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Nick Garzia, director of retail leasing for Hines, said the team was challenged to “think outside the box and create the best public space in Midtown.”
“Both office and retail tenants are demanding better public spaces,” he said in a statement. “To better compete for the ever-scarcer retail dollars, the park needed to grow up and better reflect its evolving context.”
Atlantic Station opened in 2005. The new park space is slated to open in fall 2019.
