St. Helena Branch Library Recognized by Architect Newsletter

RO Logo -stacked -white text.fwTwo years after being built, the St. Helena Branch Library was again recognized for its architecture and design. The St. Helena Branch Library was featured as a 2014 Building of the Week in the American-Architects online newsletter. American-Architects took a state-by-state look for the feature and chose the St. Helena Branch Library as the building to highlight in South Carolina. American-Architects described the design of incorporating attributes of the Gullah-Geechee Sea Island culture and its modern look and feel as the reasoning for the library being chosen as a winner.

Alpharetta City Center Opens to Public

RO Logo -stacked -white text.fwWe are pleased to celebrate the grand opening of the new Alpharetta City Hall and first phase of the City Center, located in the heart of Alpharetta, Georgia. City staff members moved their operations into the 50,000-SF facility, which was presented to the community at a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on December 15. Developed by JLL and designed by architects Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart, & Associates and David M. Schwarz, this dramatic development of 22 acres revitalizes Alpharetta’s historic downtown with a vibrant blend of commercial, residential and community uses. Intended to reinforce downtown as a focal point of civic life, the pedestrian and family-friendly environment contains a City Hall building, 450-space public parking deck, five-acre park/green space, Town Green, “pocket parks,” and five development sites for future retail spaces. Designed with traditional column and brick, the 48,000-SF City Hall includes community spaces and a history room. The Town Green, which frames a front formal view of the City Hall, is the focal point of the historic district, acting as a hub for farmer’s markets, street fairs, and performances. Another green space located adjacent to City Hall is the City Park of five contiguous acres, which includes a small amphitheater, bandshell, pathways, and stream.
