Friendship Tower CEO speaks about the building's future

Posted: Updated:

CBS46 is learning more about the future of Friendship Tower once the neighboring Falcons stadium is complete.

CBS46 spoke with Friendship Tower CEO Lloyd Hawk about a variety of issues, including the air conditioning, which he says is now working.

Many have speculated that once the stadium is finished, that would mark the end of Friendship Tower. Hawk said the plan is for a new HUD high rise or housing complex to be built nearby for Friendship Tower residents to move into.

Speculation is that once the stadium is done, Friendship Baptist will sell Friendship Tower. Hawk said that's not the case.

"We have no plans on selling anything," Hawk said.

Hawk said there's been some confusion by people who live at Friendship Tower about how to use their thermostats. Many, he said, have been turning off their air and cranking up the fans, which obviously doesn't cool things off.
