A ceremony was held to commemorate the event where a group of Federal, State, County and Local Government Officials – as well as citizens who once worked at the assembly plant – joined Integral Group Chairman and CEO Egbert Perry who talked briefly about the projects history and its future.
Doraville Mayor Donna Pittman spoke to attendees about the great promise the new development holds for her city and the region. “This event marks a special milestone in our city’s 140 year history,” said Pittman, “one that will introduce a new era for the community and region.”
Pittman said she and the city are excited about Integral/Macauley+Schmit’s vision for the site, and “look’s forward to the journey ahead.”
The 165-acre site will be redeveloped to be what is being called ‘a city within a city’.
The project is said to be a multi-billion dollar development that will include several towers, plazas, parks, transit and more.
Here are a few photos of demolition around the site.
