Macon-Bibb Public Works began tearing down the abandoned and blighted building at 155 Coliseum Drive

Macon, GA – According to the city officials, this was demolition #536 in the ongoing Blight Fight, but it represents a major step forward in economic development and revitalization for that area of East Macon.

City officials also said that this is the perfect location to become a vibrant center of activity and a gateway from I-16 into both East Macon and Downtown.

Macon-Bibb County recently bought the 21 acres and is actively looking for a developer to build something where people will be proud to live, to come to work, to jog and bike, and to give people a better first look at our community. 

Because of the size of the property, its location on the interstate, and its proximity to area attractions, it’s estimated it could attract $350 million in private investment.
