    This is indeed good news for Metro Atlanta. I wonder what they will put in the old GM plant site in Doraville. That is also a prime location, close to public transportation and an area that is fast becoming very re-gentrified with several Publix supermarkets, Starbucks coffee shops and all the usual amenities that comes with re-gentrification. I was on Chamblee-Tucker Road, the end closer to Peachtree Industrial Blvd a few days ago, and saw the many town homes built, the lofts, new businesses, etc. This area has changed vastly within the past 5-7 years.
