Flyover of Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry

The $26.5 million Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry project is the largest greenspace in the City of Atlanta. We have been a proud member of Reeves Young’s team, providing the civil design services for this 280-acre park. This project will be transformative for Westside neighborhoods and become the home of a critical 2.4 billion-gallon backup source of drinking water for the city. Park elements include a grand entrance, circulation drives, parking lots, a Grand Lawn, green infrastructure stormwater management, accessible trails, and a spectacular overlook to view the quarry reservoir.

LONG has provided the design of all roadways, grading, and drainage plans as well as sediment, erosion and pollution control plans for Phase 1A of the project that encompassed 20 acres. Phase 1B included the addition of a 166-space parking lot that drains to 6 bioretention ponds and infiltration trenches, a Grand Lawn, a second restroom building, a pavilion and 6,800 feet of accessible trails. LONG is currently entering Phase 1C of the project with the design of an additional mile of trail rim that will go around the top of the Quarry.

Each of the 279 residences and penthouses offer floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of downtown and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Homeowners will enjoy two landscaped amenity decks, which include a saltwater swimming pool and whirlpool spa, outdoor kitchen, dining areas and a fire pit, and a yoga lawn. Residents can work out in the state-of-the-art fitness center or visit nearby greenspace including the Atlanta Beltline Westside Trail and new Westside Quarry Park.

These amenities will introduce an impressive addition to the neighborhood, which has an excellent mix of restaurants, retail and entertainment set in a historic district coupled with the nationally acclaimed Georgia Tech campus.
