Macon Yards, Poplar Street

© Hood Design Studio


Situated on the fault line of Georgia, Macon’s landscape is topographically and geologically dramatic. Poplar Street’s open character and orientation emphasize the site’s unique identity. Historically significant civic and commercial buildings line either edge of the street. Currently, many of the storefront businesses are vacant and the sidewalks are under-utilized. The design supports mixed-use commercial revitalization while reinforcing existing civic use and identity.
