Proposed sea of asphalt next to new stadium bad for neighborhoods says Georgia Tech planning studio

External News Details

Now that the stadium is a done deal, what matters most is how this massive addition to the city will blend in with its surrounding environment and do no harm to the people who live near it. A class of Georgia Tech students studying under Mike Dobbins, a professor in the School of City and Regional Planning, and Bruce Gunter, a noted affordable housing expert, has been brainstorming ways to ensure Vine City, English Avenue, and Castleberry Hill don't become collateral damage in the stadium's development. In addition to studying environmental impacts and economic programs, they're trying to find ways the Falcons, state, and city can soften the blow that parking will have on the communities through integration with greenspace, tailgating, and natural water features.
