The Gulch will remain a gulch.
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said earlier today she has “no intention of asking the authors of [Gulch redevelopment] proposals” to vote on said package.
She also seemed to take a shot at the City Council members who torpedoed her $1.75-billion redevelopment plan, saying “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. (Emphasis added).
In addition to being, well, a hole in the ground, some had speculated the Gulch could be a site for Amazon’s HQ2.
City Council members determined they need more time to analyze what better to do with an unsightly, poorly-used gap in the middle of booming downtown Atlanta.
A vote on Mayor Bottoms’ proposal was expected to take place today.
