Seen and Heard: GWCCA Board Member David Allman in ATL Biz Chronicle!

GWCCA Board of Governors’ Treasurer David Allman was interviewed recently by the Atlanta Business Chronicle about Centennial Olympic Park’s recent win at the Urban Land Institute Awards( read more about the awards in this Catalyst post!).

“ULI chose Centennial Olympic Park for its 20-year project award because it has had such a profound catalytic impact on the development of an entire area, an area that was somewhat distressed prior to its creation. It actualized Billy Payne’s vision for a much needed “gathering place”’ for downtown that would become the central, unifying space in a walkable, connected mixed-use district. It has also had a dramatic positive impact on the tourism industry for Atlanta.”

Here is a link to the article. It’s a quick read. Enjoy!
