Construction has started in earnest on Presentation Academy’s new $5 million Arts and Athletic Complex on the corner of Fourth Street and Breckinridge Street in the SoBro neighborhood. You might remember from the rendering that the building was designed to blend with the style and building heights of the surrounding neighborhood and represents an increase in square footage and overall mass from the ‘coy-ly’ art-deco 900 Building that was previously on the site. The new building incorporates Romanesque characteristics into its design and as construction of the foundation is progressing rapidly, the footprint of the building is readily discernable.
It’s obvious now the building won’t have a basement, but it will have a 700 seat gym and a 300 seat auditorium as well as studio and office space. This will be a great project to see take three-dimensional shape.
