City Plaza Apartments Welcomes New City of Atlanta Wellness Center to Downtown Neighborhood
ATLANTA, Aug. 9, 2017 : On Wednesday, August 9th, 2017 Mayor Reed and Commissioner Yvonne Cowser Yancy will be on hand to officially open the brand new COA Employee Wellness Center, located on Central Avenue just steps away from City Hall, City Plaza Apartments, and the Gold Dome.The impressive facility, designed with City employees in mind, is the only of its type in the Metro Atlanta area.
The opening comes a little over a year and half from the date of the City of Atlanta's acquisition of City Plaza, a 164 unit luxury apartment community with additional "bays", several of which are occupied by the new health & wellness facility. The City then retained Atlanta-based JMG Realty, Inc. to manage the building. "Acquiring the City Plaza complex provides us with an important opportunity to enhance services for city residents," Mayor Kasim Reed said. "I am excited about this opportunity and believe residents and employees will benefit from this acquisition for years to come."
Mayor Reed certainly kept his word. The facilities opening comes as apart of Mayor Reed's "A Healthier You" initiative, with a goal to support city employees and their families in reaching their personal health goals, all while cultivating a productive and healthy workforce.
Mayor Reed & other city officials will officially celebrate the facility via Grand Opening at the site, on Wednesday, August 9th at noon.
