New developer named for vacant GM site in Doraville

Posted: Updated:

The former General Motors assembly plant in Doraville may soon have a new owner.

The 162-acre site along I-285 has been vacant for six years. But during her annual State of the City address Monday night, Doraville Mayor Donna Pittman announced development firm Macauley+Schmit and their partner The Integral Group have committed to redeveloping the land.

The city hopes to close on the deal in August. Pittman said there are still too many details in the agreement that need fine-tuning before they can be released.

"From the creation of a tax allocation district to coordination with county and state entities, our long-range goal is to create a livable, mixed-use, transit-oriented development that will be beneficial to Doraville residents and businesses," Pittman said.

The recession forced the plant to close in 2008.
