Proton Treatment Center Construction Set to Resume in SONO Area

Next year, cancer patients will have access to state-of-the-art medical care at the Georgia Proton Treatment Center, which broke ground in Midtown in 2013.

Construction of the facility on the block bounded by Peachtree St, Juniper St, North Ave and Ponce de Leon Ave is currently 80% complete and is set to resume in the near-term. Work is expected to include exterior treatments to the building façade to enhance visual interest at street-level. And following completion of remaining interior improvements, equipment installation, and construction of the planned 165-space attached parking structure, the center is scheduled to open in late-2018. 

Starting next month, tentative plans call for a full street closure on Juniper St between North Ave and Ponce de Leon Ave. More details on traffic re-rerouting plans are expected to come from the project developer and the City of Atlanta in the coming weeks. For more info on the project:
