Doraville GM Plant Does Not Get Clean Up Funds
As you know, I've written several posts about this incredible piece of land, located just 8 miles from Downtown Atlanta, AND has the Doraville MARTA train station almost adjacent to it.
Unfortunately, due to the current economic climate, there are no Buyers for this 160+ acre site! So, it just sits there for now, the parking lot filling with weeds. Sad.
It was reported sometime back that the Doraville GM Plant Would Not Get Clean Up Funds. A $773 million trust fund had been set up when GM went bankrupt and left plants behind. They kept Tarrytown, NY ( I use to work by this plant at the Tarrytown Hilton - now a Doubletree) and the Doraville (Atlanta) GA site because of the great potential they represent for redevelopment.
I hope I'm around to see this piece of real estate turned into an exciting Town Center for Doraville. It really could be an awesome place, if it is done right. We shall see.
