Prof. Green Leigh weighs in on industrial land debate

External News Details

An apartment project planned near Atlantic Station is reigniting a debate over whether Atlanta planners should preserve the city’s dwindling industrial land. From 2004 to 2009, Atlanta lost nearly 1,000 acres of industrial land (12 percent) that was redeveloped for other uses, according to a 2009 Georgia Tech report commissioned by the Atlanta Development Authority. At the time of the study, Atlanta had about 5,900 acres of industrial land, or about 7 percent of its total land. “We need to be careful and really strategic about the industrial land we do have,” said professor Nancey Green Leigh, associate dean for research at Georgia Tech’s College of Architecture. “It is job-producing land.”
