This impressive 25,000 square foot facility is located at the corner of Collier Road and Defoor Hills Rd. in the city's unique Upper Westside area. You can't miss it: a brightly colored mural featuring the Atlanta skyline and a huge locomotive envelops the exterior facade. The latter is a nod to UWC's proximity to a soon-to-be-developed section of the Beltline, a former rail line now given over to outdoor recreation. Drawing thousands of runners, walkers, bicycle riders and other sun seekers as it revitalizes surrounding neighborhoods, this future section of the Beltline is directly adjacent to one side of UWC's building and is scheduled to be completed within the next three years
