Atlanta Could Sell Civic Center to Texas Developer for $30M

New, 16 comments

It's likely that Invest Atlanta will soon sell the Boisfeuillet Jones Civic Center on the border of dowtown and the Old Fourth Ward — but for a price not everyone is thrilled about. CBS46 reports that Weingarten Realty Investors plans to transform the site into a mixed-use center featuring residences, offices, commercial spaces and restaurants. Elsewhere, the AJC explores the potential deal in greater detail (behind a paywall), finding that the project could also include a park that would stage events. With the sale, it seems doubtful that the 19-acre site will play host to the Atlanta Hawks, but could nonetheless prove a major boon for that side of downtown (although some officials feel it's worth closer to $40 million). No word on where Steve Harvey and the Family Feud crew will move.
