Atlanta Symphony Center

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Symphony Center was a proposed concert hall in Atlanta, Georgia that would have been the new home of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The site for the new structure was to be in Midtown on 14th Street just south of the current Symphony Hall in the Woodruff Arts Center. Architect Santiago Calatrava was selected to design the facility and delivered a design that would serve as a "postcard" for the city. The design was unveiled in 2005, but was cancelled in 2008 due to funding issues. The ASO now plans to build a new hall at the Woodruff Arts Center, at 15th Street and Peachtree Street.[1][dead link]

The original site, still owned by the Woodruff, will now be developed by 2020 into three more skyscrapers to be known as 98 14th St.[2] The site is currently a park-like landscaped area.[3]
