At three times its original size, the Underground Atlanta Redevelopment district captures the spirit of a growing and vital downtown center. When compared to its predecessor, it has the advantages of a comprehensive design that integrates a diverse mix of public and private facilities – all managed through a centralized authority, a partnership between the Underground Festival Development Corp., the City of Atlanta, and Rouse-Atlanta, Inc. This redevelopment district includes 220,000 square feet of shopping, dining and entertainment on 12 acres, as well parking for 1,200 vehicles. The popular entertainment area Kenny’s Alley includes 100,000 square feet designated for more that 20 restaurants, cafes and clubs. This urban location has been the site of numerous civic events, including the announcement for the awarding of the 1996 Olympic Games. The project received the 1991 Award for Adaptive Reuse from Monitor Magazine and the 1990 American Institute of Architects citation for Excellence in Urban Design.
