A highly visible building with the words "Toco Hills Doctors Building" emblazoned on it is coming down.

The company that occupied the building was incorporated <span id="U37514624025JWw">nearly 60 years ago</span>, in January 1959.

But soon, the 2910 N. Druid Hills Road address will belong to <span id="U83145461348Itm">Primrose School of North Druid Hills</span>, a private preschool in a national group of accredited early education and care schools.

Construction of the two-story school — an atypical design for Primrose that is becoming more common for its small sites in urban markets —  should be complete in summer 2017, according to a spokesperson.

Bill Pierquet, the senior vice president of development for Primrose Schools, said it will be a great addition to the area.

“Atlanta has no shortage of vibrant intown neighborhoods, and we want to make sure parents in those communities have access to high-quality early childhood education and care," Pierquet said in a statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
