Atlanta’s ChristChurch Presbyterian has officially broken ground on a dramatic new sanctuary at 1740 Peachtree Street. Unlike a traditional Southern or Gothic worship facility, the new church will feature a modern design that will incorporate much of the site’s existing building, and complement its urban setting. Gertler & Wente Architects, LLP, a New York City-based architecture firm, is serving as lead designer and Architect of Record, and Atlanta-based TSW is the local architect. Van Winkle Construction of Atlanta is the construction manager.
