Brookhaven, Ga., approves $1 billion Emory University development

"Emory at Executive Park” will encompass about 3 million square feet and be built over the next 15 to 20 years.

The city of Brookhaven, Ga., has approved Emory University’s plans to build a $1 billion research and medical complex.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the massive campus, called “Emory at Executive Park,” will be built over the next 15 to 20 years as a “health innovation district.”

The university plans to develop about 3 million square feet that will include a 140-bed hospital, clinical buildings, medical offices, administrative offices, a 200-room hotel and multifamily apartments. Construction for some buildings on the property, including a musculoskeletal research facility, is already underway.

Emory also plans to build 1½ miles of sidewalks and half a mile of trails going through park space in the center of the campus.

The city and Emory have agreed that 825,000 square feet of the development will remain as taxable property.

Earlier this month, the city planning commission requested more specific information about the what the Emory development would look like and asked the City Council to send it back for further consideration. City staff said Emory had addressed those requests and recommended that the Council approve the rezoning.

“Our partnership with Emory University allows us to accelerate several key projects of vital importance to Brookhaven, while growing one of our largest employers,” Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst says. “Emory’s campus is going to change our community in a positive way, while maintaining stability and value to the Brookhaven community through health care and innovation.”
