Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently requested a demolition permit for property at the corner of I-85 and North Druid Hills Road. The demolition includes a 19-story tower that was formerly Executive Park Motor Hotel.
After a thorough evaluation, Children’s determined that renovation was not a viable option for this building. The current structure, with its outdated construction and design, would not be able to serve any potential future needs of the pediatric health care system.
In addition, removing the building will contribute to the safety and beautification of the surrounding neighborhood.
Children’s is currently working on plans surrounding the demolition of the building. Current timing for implosion of the tower is fall 2014.
“We are continuing to assess and plan for the needs of our pediatric health care system to determine future use of the property,” said Donnie Reed, Vice President of Facilities at Children’s.
