Designed by internationally renowned artist Craig Alan, who was raised in Atlanta, “From the Ground Up” represents Atlanta’s rebuilding during the current civil unrest throughout the nation in the face of racial injustice and a worldwide pandemic. 

According to a press release, the artwork on the new mixed-use development mirrors the Woodruff Park statue, “Atlanta from the Ashes,” a representation of “the city’s rise from the ashes of the Civil War to become a world city.” 

Plans to construct 8West were unveiled two years ago. The project will feature 170,000 square feet of office space across nine floors, 10,000 square feet of ground-level restaurant and retail space, and 264 apartments. The office and retail floorplans were developed in partnership between Gateway Ventures Real Estate and Atlantic Capital Properties, and the residential units were developed by Trammell Crow Residential.
