The rehabilitation and renovation of the David T. Howard School in the Old Fourth Ward is well underway and now there are fresh renderings of the interior.
This week, architectural firm Stevens & Wilkinson released the new renderings, which show a modern, colorful interior for the revamped Howard School. The firm is working with Atlanta Public Schools and Lord Aeck Sargent to revitalize the Howard building and transform it into the new Inman Middle School.
Along with revamping the original school building, a new administrative wing and media center are also being constructed. The campus is set to open for students in August 2020.
The more than $50 million project, funded by the 2017 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST), will revive Martin Luther King Jr.’s alma mater more than four decades after it closed.
