& THE STATE OF GEORGIA ARCHIVES
Working with the adjoining Clayton College & State University (CCSU), The University Financing Foundation, the cities of Morrow and Lake City, the Clayton County Development Authority and the Clayton County Board of Commissioners, Gateway provided land acquisition, financing, master planning and infrastructure development and environmental remediation services for the transformational 93 acre Gateway Village. In addition, Gateway led the effort to procure and deliver the only co-located archival campus in the US which includes the Southeastern department of the National Archives, connected to State of Georgia Archives and adjoining CCSU’s campus. Gateway Village received a Development of Excellence Award from the Atlanta Regional Commission for a visionary public-private redevelopment partnership.
STATE OF GEORGIA ARCHIVES BUILDING
Multi-floor 171,000 square foot archival storage and training facility
Gateway provided all site selection, lease negotiations, financing, planning and construction services for the State of GA Archives facility which was planned to connect to the adjacent National Archives facility. Mission driven to house historical records, the State Archives’ structural and mechanical systems were uniquely designed to accommodate the State’s prized historical records; while the common areas were designed to showcase public records and provide training and education for a wide range of attendees; from archivists to K-12 and college students. Designed by HOK and widely accepted as the most architecturally inspiring state archives facility in the county, the building won a national AIA Design of Excellence Award and an Award of Merit for construction.
