Master plan

An overview of projects and improvements on the University of Georgia campus.

When a Baltimore landscape design firm was
hired in 1997 to help the University create a new Physical Master Plan, one of the principals of that firm praised the UGA campus and those who
tend to it.

“There is a pervasive love for this place, more
so than anywhere we’ve worked, including UVA
and UNC-Chapel Hill,” said Adam Gross of
Ayers Saint Gross. “And Broad Street frames one
of the greatest college towns in America, along with Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and Nassau Street
at Princeton.”

Gross also said that UGA does the best job of any university in maintaining its grounds and open spaces.

“When UVA president John Casteen visited here,” said Gross, “he went home and said to his people, ‘Why is the University of Georgia so beautiful in comparison to us?’ ”

The master plan that Gross and UGA’s campus architects created is now in full bloom from Broad to Riverbend. Driven by academic priorities and dedicated to creating more greenspace, today’s UGA campus is being transformed by more than $600 million in capital development projects that are either under way or in the planning stages.

To book a tour, call the UGA Visitors Center (706/542-0842). In the meantime, here’s a preview.
