"The Stitch: Mending a Torn Downtown Atlanta" presented by Jack Cebe, Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, Stitch Development Manager
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.
Jack oversees the planning, partnerships, and programs required to advance the Stitch, an initiative of the City of Atlanta to cap the Downtown Connector with 14 acres of new park space and transportation improvements in north Downtown Atlanta. Over the course of his career as an engineer, landscape architect, and urban planning professional, he has led a wide range of complex projects that have given him a deep understanding of the coalition-building, systems and operational needs, and collaborative problem solving required to ensure the Stitch’s success.
Following graduation from the Landscape Architecture program at Clemson University, Jack began his career in Chicago working on significant urban design and transportation projects such as the mayor’s initiative to implement 100 miles of protected bike lanes in four years. Later, he moved to Atlanta to attend graduate school at Georgia Tech, receiving a master's degree in Civil Engineering and a MBA from the Scheller College of Business. Following graduation Jack worked for a local architectural and engineering firm managing a myriad of different planning, engineering, and landscape architecture projects throughout the Atlanta region for clients including City of Atlanta, GDOT, and Community Improvement Districts. When he’s not “stitching” downtown back together, you can find Jack gardening, playing in his band “Short Shadow,” riding his bike around Atlanta, or relaxing on the porch with his wife Aileen, dog Orchid, and cat Bean.
