(ABOVE) Looking north at the Civic Center Redevelopment (blue) and the Stitch Initiative over I-75/I-85 Connector (green) -Image from Atlanta Housing- Stitching Downtown Back Together The I-75/I-85 Downtown Connector was heavily constructed during the late 1970s & early 1980’s and destroyed street grids east and south of downtown. “The Stitch” is a design study for a new ¾-mile platform that spans the I-75/I-85 Downtown Connector and ‘stitches’ Downtown back together. The concept creates 14 acres of new urban greenspace atop a new platform structure from the Civic Center MARTA Center at West Peachtree Street to FWW and Piedmont Avenue.
