Subject: [CPEO-BIF] General Motors site, Doraville, Georgia
Four firms to present plans for Doraville GM plant
Decision on 165-acre mixed-use redevelopment expected quickly.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (GA)
September 16, 2008

The four companies vying to redevelop the Doraville General Motors property visit Detroit this week to make their pitches to the automaker.

The 60-year-old plant, which makes minivans, closes Sept. 26. The work force has shrunk from 3,000 to 1,200.

The 165-acre Doraville redevelopment would be the largest brownfield project to date in metro Atlanta, turning an industrial site into a mixed-use destination. Atlantic Station in Midtown is 138 acres, and the former Ford Motor assembly plant in Hapeville is 122 acres.
