Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Issues Statement on Pending Gulch Proposals

ATLANTA—Today, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms issued the following statement regarding the Gulch Redevelopment proposals pending before the Atlanta City Council:

“For the past several months, members of my Administration have been working to finalize a deal to redevelop the Gulch area in downtown Atlanta. We have negotiated an unprecedented deal that will transform a 40-acre hole in the ground and make tens of millions in significant investments in other parts of our city related to affordability, equity, and opportunity.  We recognize and respect that members of Council, and the public, need more time to understand the largest development deal in our city’s history.  I have no intention of asking the authors of these proposals to request a vote on these proposals today. Members of my Administration will continue to work with members of Council and the public to better understand the substantial benefits we have negotiated and the benefits this project will bring to our entire city.”
