The old office building at Executive Park in Brookhaven has come down in preparation for construction of the Emory Sports Medicine Complex.

Atlanta Hawks Basketball Club announced Aug. 18 that demolition had begun to prepare the site for the 90,000-square-foot state-of-the-art training and sports medicine center that will be used by the basketball organization.

Emory University announced in April its purchase of the Executive Park property. The 60-acre property is located near the North Druid Hills Road and I-85 interchange.

Emory and the Hawks will partner to build the sports medicine complex, which will be located on nearly five acres at 22 Executive Park Drive, and is expected to bring at least 200 permanent jobs to the city.

The facility is being designed by HOK, the largest U.S.-based architecture-engineering firm and second-largest interior design firm. Atlanta-based construction and management firm H.J. Russell and Company, as well as Legends Project Development, are serving as the project management team for the project. Brasfield snd Gorrie General Contractors will serve as construction manager.

The complex is scheduled to be completed and open prior to the 2017-18 basketball season.
