Located outside a city known as the transportation hub of the southeast, Atlanta, GA was home to the Doraville GM Assembly Plant since 1947. In 2008, GM closed many of its assembly plants leaving hundreds of thousands of acres of warehouse buildings vacant. The Doraville GM site is a 160+ acre lot directly connected to I-285, Peachtree Industrial Blvd, Buford Hwy and the Doraville MARTA transportation line. The intent of this project is to provide the city of Doraville, GA a mixed-use community and incorporate a multi-disciplinary design and fabrication shop.
The new Motors Industrial Station will be located on the GM Site with direct access to the Doraville MARTA station and provide the community with a place to live, work and play. The development will include mixed income single family, multi family, apartment and condo dwellings. Also, a mixed-use corridor and a mid-rise development will provide leasable space for commercial and professional businesses. In keeping with the history of the site as a place of innovation and fabrication, the main office of a.b.o.t.s. LAB will provide the community with a multi-disciplinary design and fabrication shop.
