Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport plans for a $200,000 piece of artwork by artist Christopher Fennell to be installed at the intersection of Godby Road and Clipper Drive in College Park, near the airport.

The airport owns about 152 acres of land near the intersection, with most of it undeveloped land that's "ripe for development," according to city documents.

The artwork by Fennell is intended to be at the entryway to the property, part of an effort “to generate interest by companies interested in real estate near the airport,” said Hartsfield-Jackson general manager Roosevelt Council during a city council committee briefing Monday.

The property includes a former AirTran/Boeing training facility.
