It’s been over a month since we moved into our new office in Reynoldstown, and we’re now comfortably settled in. The very talented Fredrik Brauer stopped by to shoot some photos after the move-in chaos calmed down, and we’re excited to share the results with you below! A big thank you to Fredrik for the photos – we recommend that you take a moment to view more of his work on his website.

Bearden Temple AME church was constructed in 1922 in Reynoldstown, in intown neighborhood in east Atlanta. KWA was able to save the original Stone Mountain granite walls, stained glass windows, and interior elements such as the choir and wood floors that were installed after a devastating fire in December 1950. The project, which is located on the Beltline and is a short walk from the Reynoldstown/Inman Park MARTA station, is a clear embodiment of KWA’s mission of conscious urban placemaking: intelligent and responsible urban renewal that strengthens the surrounding community. While KWA occupies the upper floor, the lower floor includes 2,000 square feet of leasable space. Learn more about leasing opportunities here.

We’d also like to thank the following professionals, without whose help this project would not have happened:

Dan Gibson, Gibson Construction – General Contractor

Proficient Engineering – MEP Specialists

Stability Engineering – Structural Engineers

Next Generation Lighting – Lighting Consultants

Shaw Contract Group – Carpets
