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 nearly 60 years ago, in January 1959.
But soon, the 2910 N. Druid Hills Road address will belong to Primrose School of North Druid Hills, 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.
