"The Stitch: Mending a Torn Downtown Atlanta" presented by Jack Cebe, Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, Stitch Development Manager
The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.
The Stitch is the transformational civic infrastructure investment that will reconnect Downtown Atlanta neighborhoods that were historically severed due to construction from the Downtown Connector (I-75/85). Once implemented, the project will create approximately 14 acres of urban greenspace and transportation enhancements atop a new, 3⁄4-mile platform spanning the Downtown Connector between Ted Turner Drive and Piedmont Avenue. The aim of The Stitch is to advance the equitable revitalization of north Downtown through enhanced access to affordable housing, low-cost transportation, jobs, and community resources.
