Athens' Premier Luxury Apartments
Georgia Heights is a mixed use community in the heart of downtown Athens, GA, located in close proximity to the University of Georgia. Featuring retail shops and stores, incredible amenities, and luxury apartments. It's contemporary design has made it a unique project that stands apart in the Downtown Athens area. The site features various environmentally responsive design choices including underground water quality treatment chambers and a 1,200 square feet LiveRoof rooftop garden. These systems all work in concert to help trap, treat storm water, and filter out impurities, in addition to cooling surface temperatures. The streetscape design also works to complement and engage the bustling downtown nightlife.
“Smith Planning Group always strives to implement unique and creative design to set its projects apart, with the ultimate goal of creating spaces that people will love,” says Ed Lane, PE, Senior Project Engineer. “Urban design in particular provides a huge opportunity to create places of lasting value to the local community, and the Georgia Heights project in Downtown Athens is one such project.”
“Athens deserves projects that go beyond what's expected. From the street, you may not be able to see all the engineering at play or enjoy the beauty of LiveRoof that lies behind the stunning facades, but you should have comfort in knowing it's there,” adds Lane.
