Airport City Master Plan
Project Location: College Park, Georgia
Project Scope: 320 acres
Completion Date: 2019
Sizemore Group worked with the City of College Park to create a new master plan for the city’s mixed-use development on 320 acres west of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The City of College Park wanted to capitalize on its location near the airport, add more restaurants, maintain its historic golf course and historic buildings including the Brady Center, and create long-term sustainability. The city is targeting corporate headquarters and the entertainment, retail, technology, medical, hospitality and training industries for the development.
The plan calls for nearly 2 million square feet of class A office, including corporate headquarters; as many as six hotels; and 760,000 square feet of retail, including multiple restaurants and a premium retail center. The plan also adds a 5K loop walking/running trail around the development and a golf-related entertainment venue, while preserving the city’s historic 9-hole golf course.
The project represents a major step forward in making the region’s “Aerotropolis” vision of denser development around the airport a reality, with the potential to create thousands of jobs and attract hundreds of millions in investment.
The first phase of the master plan includes two areas, one of about 56 acres at the extreme north portion of the project master plan where residential development including multifamily, townhomes, and single-family homes would be located.
