The first pedestrian lamps in Phase II are now installed and set to be illuminated this week. When the transformation is complete, 188 of these beautiful vintage streetlamps will line Peachtree, lighting your after-hours stroll.
Also this week, our contractor is installing trees in the landscape buffer, with 24 tree plantings set to be complete by Thanksgiving.

The installation of the new granite medians is now moving to between Peachtree Dunwoody and Wieuca Road. These medians will improve traffic flow, and their landscaping will beautify your view. Contractors are pouring remedial sidewalk at Phipps Plaza and starting storm water work around Lenox Road.

You will also see mast arm poles being installed throughout the Phase II region. This will reduce unsightly utility lines, improving the view of offices, hotels, and storefronts along the sidewalk.

Before installation, these curbs are more than 15 inches tall (the former Buckhead CID ED called them the "Cliffs of Dover")! Once installed below grade, however, only six inches will be exposed, forming an attractive and sturdy transition from the road to the sidewalk buffer.
