The Georgia State University Kell Hall-Library North Quad, also known as the Greenway, is the first traditional campus greenspace to be created for the university’s Atlanta campus. As an urban university in the heart of a major city, Georgia State does not have a traditional campus plan. This new quad is the realization of the heart of the campus that was envisioned in the 2012 campus master plan. To make way for the quad, Kell Hall, a former parking deck turned classroom building, along with elevated plazas beyond, parking lots below, and a mishmash of temporary “fixes,” needed to be razed. The master plan suggested demolishing buildings and structures, at no small cost, to create the Greenway.
