Evans & Rosedale Village
In fall 2017, a ribbon cutting was held for the new Van Zandt-Guinn Elementary School in Evans and Rosedale Village. In dramatic contrast to the previous underground building, every classroom now receives natural daylight, and the media center and cafeteria spaces feature views of Downtown nearby. The school is just the latest in new construction in the area, following the Ella Mae Shamblee Branch Library and Hazel Harvey Peace Center for Neighborhoods, where both act as cornerstones to a town village located near I-35W. The next big proposal is a long dreamed of arthouse cinema at 821 East Terrell Street, indicating that the school ribbon cutting will likely be the first of many exciting new stories over the next few years.
