(October 30, 2017) ATLANTA, GA –

The City of Atlanta and Winter Johnson FS360 celebrated the new and highly anticipated Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation & Aquatic Center with a ribbon-cutting today at 10:30 a.m. The new Recreation Center, located at 110 Hilliard Street, is situated between the King Memorial MARTA station and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic District.

The $24.4 million design-build project, led by Winter Johnson FS360, fills the void created when the original Martin Luther King, Jr. Natatorium closed in 2012. The new Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation & Aquatic Center is now a key focal point and unifying center for the area’s dynamic and growing neighborhoods.

The new Recreation & Aquatic Center offers visitors state-of-the-art recreation facilities. Specific features include:

  • A zero-entry family-fun pool with play equipment features and a distinct area with lap swimming lanes
  • A basketball gymnasium with six goals and flexibility for other hard-court sports
  • An elevated running/walk track overlooking the gymnasium and pool
  • A climbing wall
  • An outdoor terrace
  • Multiple community and meeting rooms
  • A senior center
  • Group fitness areas
  • A computer room

Winter Construction and the other entities of the Winter Johnson FS360 joint venture have a long history of building recreation centers, aquatic facilities, and public buildings. “Our team is thrilled and honored to be a part of creating this much-needed center and continuing to serve the Atlanta community. As Mayor Reed mentioned this morning, we are proud to deliver the center two months early and meet the commitment of completing it before his term ends,” said Brent Reid, CEO of Winter Construction and a Managing Member of Winter Johnson Group. Artis Johnson, President and CEO of Johnson Construction Services and a Managing Member of Winter Johnson Group added, “We are so pleased to build this facility that pays tribute to Dr. King and his legacy in the area where he grew up.”
