The city plans to leave the parking lot in place during this phase of redevelopment. The back entrance along Mount Vernon Road will be closed to the public, with only delivery and construction access permitted. The southwest entrance along Sandy Springs Circle will also be permanently closed. The Good Will facility will not be torn down as part of this phase.
During its Dec. 3 meeting, the City Council approved a contract for Alternative Construction and Environmental Solutions to handle demolition of the old Target facility. As part of the demolition process, the company hopes to recycle as much as 90 percent of the materials such as metal, wiring and concrete.
