The master plan was developed after a site analysis of the historic city grid of surrounding neighborhoods in Atlanta. The architects wanted to create an urban pedestrian environment that celebrates the city’s urban lifestyle and is in continuity with the neighboring islets. They therefore increased the pedestrian pedestrian zones that merge into the adjacent towns. These shared roads and plazas form a vibrant public space that can host events, gathering spaces and outdoor activities for locals and visitors.

Centennial Yards is considered one of the nation’s largest sports and entertainment developments. It’s close to major area attractions, such as the Atlanta Hawks’ State Farm Arena and Mercedes-Benz Stadium, as well as MARTA stations that connect the site to the rest of the city. The master plan anchors these cultural hotspots and offers a variety of functions, from office buildings and business hotels to essential commercial and residential apartments.
