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, could be demolished and that property redeveloped for additional student housing and other campus uses. This new development will provide approximately 1,000 new beds to meet the on-campus capacity for SCAD Atlanta’s growing student population. The new Forty Four will also offer 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, is expected to arrive in August 2022 with 581 student beds, a dining hall, and a parking garage.

That’ll be followed by the rest in phase two—402 beds, a theater, classrooms, and a fitness center—in August 2023. Total square footage will be around 384,000.
