Downtown Atlanta Master Plan
In 2017, the Downtown Atlanta Master Plan ("the Plan") was approved by Atlanta City Council.
The Downtown Atlanta Master Plan is the result of a yearlong collaborative process that engaged people from all walks of life in Downtown Atlanta, the City of Atlanta and the region in a conversation about the next fifteen years in the center city’s unfolding future. With the recent growth in our City and exciting new projects in Downtown, the time was ripe for us to come together and consider trends driving new growth, weigh the potential for change, establish the aspects of Downtown we wish to preserve, and determine how best to guide coming change.
The Downtown Atlanta Master Plan is comprehensive, addressing a range of topics that will help the Downtown community, led by the City of Atlanta in collaboration with Central Atlanta Progress, Inc. (CAP) and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and their many partners, navigate and advocate for land use changes and transportation improvements, investments in open space and the public realm, and a range of policies and programs that together will unlock Downtown’s real estate and economic development potential in support of a more vibrant, livable, and equitable Downtown for all to enjoy.
