Close to the Georgia Tech campus and across from Bobby Dodd stadium, Inspire is a stylish, off-campus housing development filled with all the comforts and conveniences students need for an engaging educational and community experience. The two-building, 239-unit complex offers 750 beds and a four-story podium parking deck with 280 spaces.

Outside of fully furnished apartments, residents have access to a series of layered amenities that follow the natural grade of the site and carry a cascading theme throughout the entire building, culminating with an entire rooftop level of indoor and outdoor amenities with 360-degree views of Atlanta. The imaginative façade features a pattern of glass and masonry that’s distinctive yet in keeping with nearby architecture, which includes the North Ave Apartments (aka Olympic Village) that was designed for the 1996 Olympic Games.

Completed in August 2021, Inspire Atlanta has been wildly popular and offers all the luxurious accommodations and stunning views a student could want. Being able to provide a project at an advantageous location to campus, coupled with the common areas on the ground floor, rooftop and all levels in between truly makes Inspire an amenity-rich community that fosters a setting for students to create their own lasting memories.

From the Judges
Nearby Georgia Tech has a lot of brick in architecture—this project tried to match it without being too traditional. The rooftop pool and overlooking view of the stadium are nice touches.
