The Ellis on Peachtree and Renaissance Walk at Sweet Auburn Win Awards

November 20,2009

Every year, the Atlanta Regional Commission, in conjunction with the Livable Communities Coalition, honors trend-setting developments in the Atlanta region with the Developments of Excellence Awards. Past winners have been honored for exemplifying urban revitalization, transit accessibility, affordable housing, conservation and sustainability.

The award is given to developments in the 10-county metro region, or within LCI study areas in the 20-county region, that exemplify the policies and practices of ARC’s Regional Development Plan. Developments are eligible for selection as a Development of Excellence if they advance the policies and best development practices of the Regional Development Plan. Past award winners include developments that show how great design can create a "positive framework for the future" today and showcase how our community is creating innovative and successful developments for the future.
