- Hawks Partner with Healthcare for New Practice Facility
by Chris Vivlamore April 2016
Tony Ressler was adamant about the state of the Hawks' practice facility. It was, according to the franchise's principal owner, simply unacceptable. That is about to change. The Hawks and Emory Healthcare announced plans Tuesday to partner on a long-awaited sports medicine center and training facility at a news conference at Philips Arena. The 90,000-squarefoot complex will cost $50-plus million, according to a person familiar with the situation, and be privately funded. It will be on Executive Park Drive in Brookhaven. Plans for the facility are complete, and the groundbreaking is expected in mid-May to be ready for the 2017-18 NBA season. "I would say from the first day I toured our practice facility, I felt and still feel that the Atlanta Hawks were and still are at a professional disadvantage facilities-wise," Ressler said after theannouncement. "Myview was that was job No. 1 was to change that. That is what this announcement is all about. That was absolutely our first and highest objective. The NBA is tough enough having a good coach, good players, a good staff. It's a competitive, competitive world, as you well know. Having a professional disadvantage, which I thought our practice facilities were, that's not an organization I want to be a part of."
