In March, the GWCC closed on a deal to buy the Metro Atlanta Chamber building beside the park for $10.5 million. Officials plan to demolish the building to open up views of the College Football Hall of Fame and the convention center across the street.
The park plan also includes opening a restaurant, adding more space for concerts and festivals and upgrading water features.
Project funding includes promised donations of $10 million from the Woodruff Foundation and $1 million from Coca-Cola.
The GWCC also is raising money through a relaunch of the “Adopt-A-Brick” program that helped pay for the original park for the 1996 Summer Olympics.
