Buckhead REdeFINED – WEST VILLAGE

BUCKHEAD’S WEST VILLAGE OFFERS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH BECAUSE OF ITS COMBINATION OF LOCAL west village picBUSINESSES, HISTORIC STREET GRID, AND CIVIC INSTITUTIONS SUCH AS THE ATLANTA HISTORY CENTER, THE BUCKHEAD THEATRE, AND LOUDERMILK PARK.

In the face of growing development pressure, the village scale and architectural character should be retained as possible. Appropriate locations for new public parks and plazas within the fabric of the West Village should be identified early to shape future development. In addition to providing public space, new development should look to preserve or replicate existing storefronts, with mid-rise towers setback to respect the village scale while accommodating increased density. Walkability and connectivity should be prioritized with the addition of new street connections, streetscape enhancements such as on-street parking, street trees, and wider sidewalks. The proposed Buckhead Cultural Loop Trail (M.21), will add a needed east-west mobility option and greenspace, while enhancing overall Buckhead connectivity.
