This is a 56,000-square-foot library renovation and expansion of the current library located at Auburn Avenue and Courtland Street. It is part of Phase I of the Library Building Program that is currently underway.
JWRA / Freelon, a joint venture of J. W. Robinson & Associates and Freelon Group, Inc. has contracted with Fulton County to provide design and engineering services for the new library. Heery/Russell is the program management team.
Construction for the expansion and renovation will take approximately 12 months, and the reopening of the renovated and expanded research library is expected in the fourth quarter of 2015. During construction Auburn Avenue Research Library services will be available at the Central Library at One Margaret Mitchell Square, Atlanta 30303, on the corner of Carnegie Way and Forsyth Street.
