Reed spokeswoman Anne Torres sent out a memorandum that the mayor “will be joined by other city leaders to make an important economic development announcement.”
There are a number of possible developments the mayor could speak on at the scheduled press conference, including Turner Field, the Atlanta Civic Center and the defunct Fort McPherson Army Base.
However, it is interesting to note that, this past spring, the Atlanta City Council approved the mayor to to purchase the Underground’s current lease break to the tune $8.8 million from CV Underground, which managed the property.
