City days away from closing deal on Callaway Building

Share

The City of Decatur will soon close on a deal to purchase the Callaway Building on W. Trinity Place from DeKalb County, the city manager says.

City Manager Peggy Merriss said during Monday’s City Commission the city plans to close on the property on Oct. 10.

Before the commission meeting, the city Urban Redevelopment Agency authorized issuing $5.12 million in bonds to buy the property. 

The city has entered an agreement with Cousins Properties to redevelop the Callaway Building as part of a mixed use development.

In other business Monday:

City Commissioners approved two change orders:  a $83,100 contract increase for improvements to the city’s Public Works building and a $253,000 contract increase for the Beacon Municipal Complex.

Both are still within the available budgets for those projects.
