Deal to give former park to developer in exchange for affordable housing raises concerns

The City Council has given a thumbs-up to a deal that would give the former Gun Club Park in Northwest Atlanta to developer Brock Built in exchange for an unspecified number of affordable housing units, developed green space, and a small parcel of land the developer currently owns. As of now, the deal is lacking specificity, but it’s already raising concerns about open bidding and a nonprofit’s longstanding effort to start a public visioning process for the site.
