The City of Atlanta closed the long-planned sale of the Atlanta Civic Center, clearing the way for a $300 million redevelopment plan. With the aging arts center now under the control of the Atlanta Housing Authority, a mixed-use, mixed-income development can be built in its place. “This project will represent the largest commitment to affordable housing in the city of Atlanta in more than 15 years,” Mayor Kasim Reed said, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. [AJC]
