Mending a Torn Urban Fabric
The Stitch is a transformational civic infrastructure investment needed to reconnect Downtown and Midtown Atlanta. Once implemented, the Stitch will create approximately 14 acres of urban greenspace and transportation enhancements atop a new, 3⁄4-mile platform spanning the Downtown Connector between Ted Turner Drive and Piedmont Avenue. The aim of the Stitch is to advance the equitable revitalization of north Downtown through enhanced access to affordable housing, low-cost transportation, jobs, and community resources.
The Stitch will unite the city with an elevated urban oasis of parks, paths, development sites and programmable spaces.
As a catalyst for new development, The Stitch can provide billions of dollars in value creation and generate over $50 million in new revenue.
Reconnecting neighborhoods in the heart of the city can spur new opportunities for affordable housing, sustainability, development, safety, and unity.
