The site for the new Center for Civil and Human Rights may be unveiled as soon as Monday.

Officials involved in the proposed Center for Civil and Human Rights plan to announce Monday where they will build the $125 million facility.

Signs point to 2.5 acres that Coca-Cola owns just north of Centennial Olympic Park, near the World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium. Monday’s announcement will be held at Pemberton Place, located between World of Coca-Cola and the aquarium.

Construction of the site is scheduled to begin next year. Preliminary projections show the center drawing 650,000 visitors a year. Drafts of recommended content for the site include moments from the area’s rich gay history.
