Emory files plan for $1B 'health innovation district'

Atlanta-based Emory University filed a rezoning application with the city of Brookhaven, Ga., describing its plans for a $1 billion "health innovation district," according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Emory purchased roughly 60 acres in Executive Park in Brookhaven in 2016. In the rezoning application, Emory said it plans to use the property for mixed-use development, including medical services, a hospital, a hotel and commercial space. The new development would add to "the successful programs in orthopedics, sports medicine, brain health, medical science education and health information technology already located on the site," according to the report.

The new development, which could take 15 years to finish, would be across the street from a new $1.5 billion hospital campus being built by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, according to the report.
