It was announced in 2005 that the GM Plant in Doraville would cease operations in 2008.
Little did we know what was going to happen to the real estate market. As such, the site just sat there from 2008 until 2015! But that is all going to change now!
The site was purchased by The Integral Group and Mccauley and Schmidt. Most of this year has been spent tearing down the massive auto plant...a huge project in itself! I've posted a video below of the before, during and how the site looks today (December, 2015) The nitty gritty details of the Tax Allocation District are about finalized and this will put the money in place to start the needed infrastructure work on the site, including the amazing Park Avenue covered street that will connect not only the Downtown Doraville area, but will offer the missing connection to the site from the Doraville MARTA station! It's all so exciting.
Assembly Doraville is a project with massive regional impact. It's developer referred to it as the "hole in the donut" because of the development that has occurred all around the site, Perimeter, Chamblee, Tucker and Norcross. But the plans for this site will make it be a major player in not only potential corporate relocations, but an entire new take on mixed-used development.
We will keep this page updated (and will date each entry so you can follow along) with either more information, or links to posts I write about what is happening at the site. We have a page for Doraville and will work to cross post so you can keep up with the progress.
