New video offers an extended look at a transformative expansion
An exciting new conceptual video shows an extended vision of the transformative expansion of Zoo Atlanta. The two-minute sneak peek takes viewers through the proposed grand entry plaza on Cherokee Avenue, into the restored 1921 Cyclorama building, through an after-hours tavern and restaurant, and into the state-of-the-art event space and dining terrace that will look out over the giants of the savanna as they roam an African watering hole.
Zoo Atlanta recently received a $20 million grant from the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation for the project, entitled “A Grand New View: Elephants, Events and Expansion.” The grant will match other gifts for the campaign on a 1:1 basis up to $20 million.
The project is expected to be completed in 2018 or 2019; stay tuned for updates.
