The 162-acre Doraville Assembly General Motors plant has been sitting vacant since the factory closed in 2008. But now that the sale of the property is nearly complete, Doraville residents and leaders have no shortage of ideas on how the site, under contract by an Egbert Perry-led team of developers, could be transformed. They chattered excitedly at a recent townhall meeting about the possibilities for the property. New high school? Sports fields? Medical center? Shopping? Offices? Homes? All of the above? Whatever the outcome, it's expected to take 12 to 18 months just to clear the land so that new construction can begin. [Image and info via AJC]
