An urban park featuring pickleball courts, a dog park, and food-and-beverage options will transform a nearly 40,000-square-foot site in West Midtown.
Star Metals Urban Park is proposed for 690 11th Street NW, Urbanize Atlanta reports.
Royal Byckovas Architecture and Design, an architecture firm in Miami, has shared details of the project. Plans would include repurposing a 20,000-square-foot single-story building at the site, using components of the structure to incorporate lots of greenery and “hanging gardens,” creating a trellis system for plants and vines.
The park would include three pickleball courts, a 13,500-square-foot dog park, and places to grab a drink or snack.
“Star Metals Urban Park will be complemented with 2-3 new food and beverage concepts that will define the perimeter streetscape and bring new foot traffic to what will become Atlanta’s most innovative urban park,” according to the architecture firm.

The budget for the project is $1,500,000, according to the firm.
The developer is The Allen Morris Company, also the team behind the Stella at Star Metals. The 327-unit luxury apartment complex is in the works adjacent to the proposed park, with an expected completion of Q1 2025. The building will include studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.
