City of Riverdale Town Center

City of Riverdale Town Center

City of Riverdale Town Center The image of the City of Riverdale is to be progressive with a new original architectural character by Sizemore Group. The Civic Center which includes a new City Hall, Community Center and the Amphitheater constitutes about 15 acres. The large recreation space doubles as a performance space for 1,000 people. A large divisible meeting space spills out onto an elevated terrace. The Community Center and City Hall are the edges of an amphitheater with an interactive fountain. “We first selected The Sizemore Group after watching them help transform the City of Smyrna into what it is today, and we knew that we needed the same type of catalytic project. We not only wanted our buildings to make a statement, we also needed them to be LEED certified, help the city address utility costs and conserve water, and provide very specific functions. It was clear that we were trying to create something that the metro area hadn’t seen before. “Sizemore made our vision a reality and put the city on the map. They helped us convert a small pocket park into a cultural nexus that has brought new energy to the city. Our new Town Center – which includes a City Hall, community center, amphitheater, and large recreation space – attracts visitors from all over the region and has served as a nucleus for new development.” – Doug Manning, Director of Operations, Butts County Board of Commissioners Office Services Master Planning Programming Architectural Design Construction Administration Project Management Awards AIA Georgia 2013 Merit Design Award Silver in the 2013 Brick in Architecture Awards by the Brick Industry...
