Downtown AJC Building Being Donated to City of AtlantaDecatur Metro | November 9, 2010 | 9:21 am
How DOES the AJC get all these great scoops? 🙂
The paper reports this morning that Cox Enterprises will be donating its downtown building along Marietta Street and the former printing press building behind it to the City of Atlanta. The property is estimated at $50 million.
According to the AJC, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed plans to “put police and fire training academies in the buildings, use the auditorium for public meetings, create a gallery space that formerly was at City Hall East, and use warehouse and parking space.”
Not only will this fill a currently vacant building in downtown Atlanta, but it’ll save the city some serious coin as they move departments from leased spaces.
Nice move Cox Communications!
