The plant was purchased for over $40 million by Jacoby Development, Inc., in June 2008. [3] Demolition of the plant began in August 2008 and is expected to take one year. The site is expected to be used for a 6,500,000-square-foot (600,000 m2) "multi use" community of retail, office, and hotel developments as well as additional parking for the adjacent Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
