Managing Partner Chris Goode and Partner Paul Van Slyke with Goode Van Slyke Architecture are in the studio for today’s episode of Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio. Joined by co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick, the group discusses several past and upcoming projects, as well as what sets this architectural firm apart on today’s All About Real Estate segment of Radio.
Goode Van Slyke Architecture is coming up on a huge milestone, celebrating 25 years in business. Opening its doors in 1996, the company focused primarily on building educational k-12 buildings. This eventually grew into more buildings that would also include higher education structures such as colleges and universities.
As Goode Van Slyke Architecture became more popular, the company started to receive requests for special projects as well, including new homes and office spaces. The firm was also selected as one of the groups for the design of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Today, the company is well-known for completing several different types of projects around Atlanta, including museums, performing arts centers, healthcare facilities, hotels, event centers, multi-family developments, justice centers, fire stations, churches, stadiums, aquatic facilities, studios, city development and much more!
Composed of a team of 25 stellar architects, the average builder experience length at Goode Van Slyke Architecture is 17 years. This means its projects move forward with efficiency, care and detail-oriented approaches. The firm is also used to working on several different types of projects and knows the ins-and-outs of the architectural world with anything from residential homes to massive sports stadiums.
As one of the four firms working on the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Goode Van Slyke Architecture was able to design a big portion of the home field for the Atlanta Falcons and the Atlanta United FC. This monumental, lifetime structure demanded high-end quality on a compressed schedule. The architecture team worked very well to help complete the complicated $1.5 billion+ project.
On the other end of the building spectrum, Goode Van Slyke Architecture recently completed work on Seven88 West Midtown, a new high-rise residential condominium in West Midtown. This 23-level residential and retail development has been very well-received and is selling fast. Additionally, the architecture firm is working on another mixed-use facility in Alpharetta near Avalon. This facility offers a hotel, office space, retail, fitness centers and more. Goode Van Slyke Architecture will also start work on several projects for the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Currently, Goode Van Slyke Architecture is working on several affordable projects. The firm prides itself on always partaking in projects that have a positive impact on the surrounding community. Projects include taking nonutilized properties and turning them into places for people to work. This includes work on the Huff Trail and The Fairmont. The Fairmont was a nonperforming building that was turned into a space for events, work and more.
Other ways Goode Van Slyke Architecture works to give back to the community is through education. The firm partners with several of the schools it works with. This includes going into schools and talking to kids, mentoring high school students, inviting students to shadow and learn about architecture, providing interactive and hands-on work for grade school kids and much more. The firm also donates school supplies yearly to King Elementary.
While business continues to be successful for Goode Van Slyke Architecture, the company has seen several changes over the past year due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus pandemic). Building design changes were implemented in projects to help keep everyone safe, including touch-free entries in facilities like at Seven88 West Midtown.
