Square Footage

Arthur M. Blank Family Upper School is a new 4 story, 76,000 sf high school for the Pace Academy in Atlanta. This building completes the master plan of Pace’s campus that was only a dream years ago. The existing 1960’s Upper School, lacked in size, technology and quality in comparison to the rest of campus. The Pace Community, wanting change came together to deliver a capital campaign that raised millions of dollars to construct this facility. Their involvement was incorporated into the design of the building, as it flawlessly blends in with the exceptional craftsmanship of the homes in the surrounding area. In summer of 2013, the existing Upper School was demolished and that same summer, foundations for the new Upper School were cast. The facility includes; classrooms, science laboratories, study rooms, student commons, 2 floors of library, and a roof top terrace.
