Schmit + Associates

+ OPPORTUNITY

Develop a master plan that would revitalize historic Mableton.

+ APPROACH

By bringing together alliances, including architects Duany Plater-Zyberk, the ARC, the Federal Administration on Aging, and Lifelong Communities, the group developed a national model that could be replicated nationally.

+ ROLE

Schmit+Associates worked with the community and Cobb County in the adoption of a new zoning overlay and a form-based code to govern development of the newly envisioned Mableton. The work of Schmit+Associates was instrumental in the redevelopment design of the new Mableton Elementary School and assisted in the proposed development for an adjacent YMCA. Planning is now underway for expansion of the Mableton Arts Center and for the creation of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (as part of a larger mixed-use Lifelong Community) in the heart of Mableton.
