SCAD Forty Four

1 2 3 4 / 4

The development at the Spring House parcel of SCAD Atlanta is a two-phase project with two distinct residential buildings.

With the completion of SCAD Forty, SCAD’s adjacent existing residence hall, Spring House, was demolished and the property was redeveloped for additional student housing and other campus uses. This new development provides approximately 1,000 new beds to meet the on-campus capacity for SCAD Atlanta’s growing student population. The new Forty Four also offers dining and fitness amenities, academic space, a parking garage, campus store, and a performance theater.

The design team of Mackey Mitchell Architects and Lamar Johnson Collaborative began working with SCAD in October 2018 and multiple options and iterations were studied before the overall concept was selected.

The first phase, within the northernmost building, offers 581 student beds, a dining hall, and a parking garage.

Phase two—402 beds, a theater, classrooms, and a fitness center—was completed in 2023. The total square footage will be around 384,000 square feet.
