The Bishop
Atlanta, Georgia


 

Summary
Replacing what was once a dead-end surface parking lot, The Bishop and the newly created Springwood Connector have transformed a suburban office park by creating a lively mixed-use streetscape complete with a public plaza and greenspace for the residents and office tenants enjoyment. Pedestrian walkways carve through the building, strategically allowing easy access to restaurants, retail and a nearby Starbucks. The façade along Peachtree Dunwoody Road is divided into two distinct masses. A dramatic masonry form anchors the corner at the Springwood Connector, floating over ground-level restaurants while contrasting gray tones and double-height balconies differentiate the adjacent shotgun style units that face Atlanta’s iconic King and Queen Buildings. Duplicate amenities are housed within each of the two buildings, allowing for the potential sale of the development as two separate properties.
