PEACHTREE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

Campus Additions and Renovations
Atlanta, Georgia

In support of a rapidly growing congregation and youth ministry, Peachtree Presbyterian Church added a Youth Building, Parking Deck and Sanctuary Gathering Atrium, as well as updates to some of the existing administration areas, to their campus in Buckhead.

The new Youth Building and Parking Deck are located on the east side of Roswell Road. To surmount the problems associated with pedestrian traffic between the Main Sanctuary and campus on the west side of Roswell Road, the Church constructed a tunnel that connects the lower level of the Youth Building to the lower level of the Sanctuary Addition, thus eliminating the difficulties of pedestrian traffic between the two facilities.

The new Parking Deck will have approximately 360 parking spaces. The new Youth Building has a footprint of nearly 35,000 SF, and features separate middle school and high school worship spaces. The new tunnel extends a total 230 LF, of which 120 is directly under Roswell Road. Construction of the tunnel included moving numerous utilities under the road and in the right of way.

All existing facilities have remained in full use during all phases of construction.
