Neighborhood History

Rivers hired Carrère and Hastings from New York, one of the premiere American architectural firms to design the land plan. Their design reflects the influence of the Olmstead brothers (creators of New York’s Central Park, as well as Atlanta’s Druid Hills community, the Olmstead Linear Park system and Piedmont Park) in adhering to the curvilinear streets that follow the terrain, generous lots and beautiful gardens. Almost 100 years later the mature beauty of our neighborhood is a proud testament to the foresight of the architect and developer. Those of us who are fortunate to live here think this is Atlanta’s finest neighborhood.
