When Selig Enterprises was developing a design team to change the landscape of Berkley Park in the City of Atlanta for a new mixed-use development, they chose Urban Engineers, Inc. The site was deemed a challenge, evidenced by a previously failed concept for a Home Depot facility by the affected neighborhood association. The mixed-use concept that Selig proposed helped to ease concerns that the neighborhood association initially held by facilitating pedestrian access; reducing vehicular flow; and, enhancing protection of the existing vegetation on this urban site. Urban Engineers, Inc. performed the initial land survey of the Castlegate facility and developed a demolition plan to remove the abandoned and condemned structure, allowing the redevelopment to begin. Urban Engineers, Inc. overcame many obstacles in obtaining approval from the City of Atlanta due to the dense urban nature of this project and the changing storm-water regulations.
