What is Simple City?
Simple City started in 2014 when I illustrated the original three buildings of of my hometown in Lilburn, Georgia. I was tasked with creating a new logo for use on t-shirts, mugs, and other consumer items. After the project, I didn't think much more about the project.

But, when I moved to Downtown Atlanta I became extremely inspired by the buildings surrounding me on a daily basis. While on holiday from college, I illustrated my first Atlanta building in this simple style.

When I went to post the design on Instagram, I quickly brainstormed what to call this new series. Laying on my childhood floor I thought, "#minimalcity"? maybe "#simpelcity"?

Simple City was it. Again, not a great deal happened after I posted this, but months later I found myself designing these buildings everyday and the reception was terrific. Then, I decided to press in--to focus my efforts on Simple City by throwing events, building an online store, and wholesaling with West Elm.

Today, Simple City is growing evermore. This project has always been about Atlanta, but soon it will mature and grow to other cities with the same goal: to delight and inform citizens about their city.

Why Simple City?
Two years ago I wrote this...

6/6/15  I look at these buildings now and I see the history behind them. I feel so connected to my city simply because I know more about it - that's what I want for every Atlanta citizen. To see these buildings but see past the concrete, and into the lives that built them, the ones who paved the streets we walk on today. That's all simple city is about. It's you and the city getting better acquainted.

Even today, the Simple City project is intended to delight and inform the people of Atlanta about their city. Cities are known by their buildings and Atlanta's story is found in them. From the old Coca-Cola bottling factory on Edgewood to the Bank of America Plaza on North Ave, our buildings represent the complex history of Atlanta.

So, let's enjoy these buildings for their grandeur, beauty, and historical significance! Architects, city planners, designers, and developers, let us build even more beautiful buildings to advance the people of our city.

Hey! What's up?

Preston here. Over two years ago I started Simple City...well, because I couldn't help it! I love Atlanta and love the beautiful buildings we have here.

In the meantime of starting Simple City, I've attended Georgia State University, dropped out, and started a design business called DesignCue.

DesignCue is a network of Atlanta-based designers where we help startups get easy access to logo, web, and app design.

I've also been producing Youtube videos. You can see those here!

GLG Grand
75 14th St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309

The GLG Grand building is a 186-meter (609-foot) tall skyscraper in Midtown Atlanta. The Art Deco-inspired, pyramid-capped tower is 53 stories tall and was finished in 1992. The bottom third of it is the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, which includes 244 guest rooms and is the only 5-star hotel in Midtown. It is the eleventh-tallest skyscraper in Atlanta.[2] The building was designed by Rabun Hogan Ota Rasche Architects, and built by Beers Construction of Atlanta.

The GLG Grand building is notable for several reasons. First, it was Atlanta's first mixed-use skyscraper, incorporating hotel, office and condominiums into one building. Several skyscrapers of the same type are on the drawing boards, but they have yet to break ground. Second, it was a dismal failure for its developer, G. Lars Gullstedt (1935-2015) of Sweden, who made headlines in Atlanta in 1991 by buying up huge parcels of run-down land in Midtown and proposing a massive multi-block mixed-use development to be called "GLG Park Plaza." The GLG Grand, which took its name from Gullstedt's initials, was an unrelated development of Gullstedt's on 14th Street, several blocks north. The building opened in 1992 to a depressed real estate market, and its condominiums and office space sat largely vacant. Gullstedt, who was also a developer in Sweden, was forced into bankruptcy there, and lost control of all of his Atlanta holdings including this building. Only now, in the mid-2000s, are his former Midtown parcels beginning to be developed.

But, doing so with one of the largest media and technology companies in the world that invested around $100 million in a multi-terabit network to make the development one of the most connected in the United States, does not happen every day. Located within The Battery Atlanta, which is adjacent to the new home of the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park, Wakefield Beasley was tasked with the design of the 60 acre site. 

For Comcast Regional Headquarters, the nine-story office tower which includes an Innovation Lab and 20,000 square feet of restaurant and hospitality space facing the SunTrust Park plaza, the firm aimed to create a signature design that complements the dynamic surrounding environment while providing corporate space for the Central Division headquarters of Comcast and its 1,000+ employees.

The new mansion's design was executed by Philip Trammell Shutze, combining Renaissance revival styles with a Classical approach on the main facade. The rear facade is less formal, and is sited at the top of a small hill with terraced gardens and a fountain cascading down the hillside.

LOUDHAUS by Greg Mike
583 North Avenue NE Atlanta, Ga 30308

Meet “The LOUDHAUS,” a single-story brick bungalow in the shadow of Ponce City Market that’s becoming one big street-art installation. (Brick-preservation warriors should know the home had already been painted for years.)

Poised over the corner of Glen Iris Drive and North Avenue, the project is the work of local artist Greg Mike, whose brightly colored murals can be found across Atlanta, incorporating myriad versions of the toothy, signature “LOUDMOUF” character.

Mike tells Curbed Atlanta the home is occupied, and that it was donated and commissioned as a canvas by developer Pat Gilroy of RPG Holdings, whom Mike describes as “a big supporter of the neighborhood.”

That company owns the prominent site, just up the hill, where the 525 North office concept was recently scrapped for an upcoming apartment build.

Inspired by midcentury American cartoons, Mike describes his pieces as explosive works “of incandescent color filtered through a Surrealist Pop Art perspective [and] populated by gleefully twisted characters.”

He’s the founder and creative director of ABV Gallery, and in 2015 he launched the OuterSpace Project, which recently splashed murals on sections of ITP Atlanta from Summerhill to Decatur and Midtown. - Curbed Atlanta

Kell Hall - Georgia State
24 Peachtree Center Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30303

The old yellow building has served as Atlanta’s first parking garage, a saw mill, the city symphony’s rehearsal space and the first permanent building on Georgia State University downtown campus.

Now Kell Hall, like so much of the city’s history, has one last mission: the wrecking ball.

Georgia State President Mark Becker announced plans Wednesday to tear down the 88-year-old building on Peachtree Center Avenue. In its stead, leaders want to create a true campus green amid the city’s forest of concrete and steel. Demolition will be scheduled within the next five years.

“We need green space at the core of our campus,” said Becker, who unveiled the plan to applause at his annual address to faculty and the university’s more than 32,000 students.

“To achieve this vision for lawns and public areas that will for the first time give our university community inviting and attractive areas in the center of campus, we will have to remove Kell Hall and parts of two other buildings,” he said. “All of this is being planned for … and it will be worth it. This plan will transform our campus and make it an even better environment to work and learn in.”

What was originally known as the Ivy Street Garage opened in 1925, its fancy concrete ramps inside setting a new standard in what became a car-centered town.

As the years went by, a neighbor saw it as something else: relief for what was then the Atlanta Center’s Evening College. A flood of veterans returning from World War II overflowed the school’s only classroom building on downtown’s Luckie Street. - AJC
