Fulton Industrial CID restores historic sculpture

The Atlanta Gateway sculpture off of Fulton Industrial Boulevard has just been restored.

A giant 48-year-old outdoor sculpture at the center of Atlanta’s Fulton Industrial Boulevard corridor has been refurbished back to its original “sunrise red” luster.

The commercial painting and coating company Benise-Dowling & Associates Inc. of Decatur completed work this month restoring the Atlanta Gateway sculpture, a geometric work built in 1967 at the intersection of Great Southwest Parkway and Fulton Industrial Boulevard in conjunction with a planned industrial park.

“The revitalization of the Gateway is symbolic of the CID’s efforts to return Fulton Industrial Boulevard to its stature as a catalyst for economic development both regionally and internationally,” said Kent Walker, secretary of the CID board and vice president of Selig Enterprises Inc.
