Georgia State University plans demolition of Downtown parking deck

Georgia State University (GSU) plans to demolish an aging parking deck marked for redevelopment in a campus master plan.

GSU did not respond to questions about the demolition of Parking Deck Y at 60 Peachtree Center Ave. A University System of Georgia Board of Regents decision favoring the demolition was approved by Gov. Brian Kemp in an Aug. 29 executive order.

On the left, a GSU facilities map shows Deck Y as Number 106 and Deck A as Number 107. On the right, a map from GSU master plan shows Lot V and Decks A and Y replaced with buildings, as shown in blue in the upper right.

The order says the Board of Regents determined that Deck Y “can no longer be advantageously used… and should be removed.” The order calls for the demolition to be done as “expeditiously as possible.”

The approximately four-story deck dates to 1964, according to Fulton County property records.

Next door to the south is Deck A, another small-scale GSU parking structure dating to the 1960s, at the corner of Peachtree Center and Auburn Avenue. Next door to the north is Lot V, a surface parking lot behind GSU’s College of Law at Peachtree Center and John Wesley Dobbs Avenue.

Both decks and the lot are marked for redevelopment in a 2019 GSU master plan that was updated last year. The master plan calls for the deck sites to be replaced with “proposed joint venture [redevelopment] & ground-level retail,” and for Lot V to become an academic building.

    Actually, I’m glad that at least someone is taking care of it, I usually pay attention to such details that’s why I’m very glad that the University is taking care of the city cleaning. Besides that I also want to always be perfect in what I do that’s why I started using https://edubirdie.com/plagiarism-checker this plagiarism checker I find one of the best and a big advantage is that it is absolutely free, which for me matters a lot.Report
