PROJECT (Centennial Place Elementary School)

Centennial Place is a 900 unit, mixed-income housing development in Atlanta, Georgia. Centennial Place Elementary School is a K-5 magnet school that shares space with the local YMCA. Developers worked with representatives from the Atlanta Public School board to replace the older elementary school with a new school at a different site within the community. Financing for the new school was supported by contributions from the Atlanta YMCA and the Atlanta Public School System. Representatives from Georgia Tech University, the Coca Cola Corporation, Bank of America, Bell South, the YMCA, and All Saints Episcopal Church served as partners for this project.
