Former AJC Headquarters To Replace City Hall East

Cox Enterprises donated the AJC’s former downtown headquarters to the City of Atlanta – a donation of valued at over $50 million that includes the nine-story office building on 72 Marietta Street, the four-story printing press building between Fairlie and Spring streets, warehouse space and surface parking.  The donated site is more than 6 acres of prime real estate located in the heart of downtown, near City Hall, Centennial Olympic Park, and the proposed multi-modal passenger terminal.

The City will spend $1.5 million to retrofit the building to put police and fire training academies in the buildings, use the auditorium for public meetings, create a gallery space and use warehouse and parking space in the wake of the sale of City Hall East.
