Vine City and nearby English Avenue have long been home to African American academic, religious, political, and business luminaries. The area boasts four prominent historically black colleges and universities. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived here, alongside fellow civil rights leaders Julian Bond and Maynard Jackson. Despite its proud legacy, more recent memories reflect the outcomes of decades of disinvestment and inequality.
After years of activism by neighborhood residents we helped create a state-of-the-art city park, engineered to absorb millions of gallons of stormwater, through engineered green space and a retention pond.
