Office buildings for Children’s Health Care of Atlanta located at 1577 Northeast Expressway are being demolished.
The demolition is part of the construction of CHOA’s new campus at I-85 and North Druid Hills Road. CHOA announced last year that it is closing its inpatient facility at Egleston campus at Emory and opening a new hospital across the street from Executive Park. It will be several years before Egleston’s inpatient facility closes. The new hospital will be located across the street from the Atlanta Hawks sports medicine center and training facility. It might take as long as eight years to build the new hospital.
Following current demolition, Children’s Healthcare will begin to construct a support building in the offices’ place. Once the Support Building is finished, construction of the replacement hospital and full North Druid Hills campus can begin.
According to a recent press release, “the 348,000-square-foot Support Building and associated parking deck is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2020.”
With a finished Support Building, Children’s Healthcare support staff can enjoy:
– Staff dining
– A coffee shop
– A fitness center
– Employee health clinic
– Outdoor work, meeting and dining spaces
“The new Support Building will create a work environment with improved opportunities for collaboration and innovation for our support teams,” Chief Administrative Officer at Children’s Healthcare, Linda Matzigkeit said in a recent press release. “As we invest in our medical and support facilities, the goal is to attract and retain the best clinicians and staff so that Georgia’s children continue to receive the specialized care they deserve.”
