constitution building detail In October, the Atlanta City Council voted to transfer ownership of the historic Atlanta Constitution Building and associated property to the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), despite statements by DOCOMOMO supporters and a request for further consideration of the issue by Councilwoman Mary Norwood. This action all but guarantees demolition of the building for construction of a new Multimodal Passenger Terminal. Prior to this vote, the Chapter repeatedly requested that the City Council require GDOT consideration of alternatives to demolition prior to property transfer. Over 800 individuals have signed a petition asking the GDOT consider alternatives to demolition.
