Pemberton Place, located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, just north of Centennial Olympic Park in the Luckie Marietta district, is a complex that is home to the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, and the Center for Civil and Human Rights. It is named after John Pemberton, the inventor of Coca-Cola.
The area was originally ten city blocks of businesses, residences, etc.; it started to decline in the mid-20th century and by the early 1990s was considered a "long forgotten district of downtown". The Coca-Cola Company acquired property in the area and built Coca-Cola Olympic City there, for the 1996 Olympics. The company then donated the land in 2002, to provide a home for visitor attractions.
