HGOR Celebrates 25 Years with Three New Principles

HGOR celebrates 25 years of monumental projects like The Battery at SunTrust Park, Coca-Cola World Headquarters, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Grant Park Gateway Project with the appointment of three new principals: Todd Fuller, Chris Mutter and Lauren Standish. Collectively the HGOR team has developed solutions to the campus, community, urban, parks and mixed-use space in 34 states and six countries and have received over eighty planning and design awards.

We strive to combine a business solution with a placemaking solution to create an asset. We believe that you do well by doing good and continuing to make a significant difference in our city, and other cities, for another 25 years.
— Robert Hughes, Founding Principal
