Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Ford Motor Co. assembly plant, Hapeville, Georgia
Hapeville Ford plant sale closes
Demolition of old factory could begin next week

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (GA)
June 12, 2008

Demolition of the old Ford Motor Co. assembly plant in Hapeville could begin as early as next week after Ford and Jacoby Development closed the sale of the property Wednesday night.

Jacoby plans to redevelop the 122-acre site next to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport into an "aerotropolis" — an aviation-intensive business district that might include office, retail, restaurant, hotel and airport parking.

The sale price was not disclosed.

"Just as the Ford assembly plant has been an economic engine for the region for more than half a century, this redevelopment will build on the powerful economic engine that is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport," Jim Jacoby, chairman and CEO of Jacoby Development, said.
