Downtown Atlanta property still in disrepair 10 years after tornado

A lot has changed for the better since since 2008, but Michael Montgomery told Channel 2's Carl Willis one part has not. 

Montgomery is the general manager of Skyview Atlanta.

"The Westin obviously looks phenomenal, CNN and all those other locations look great but this place has kind of just stayed this way," he said. 

He's talking about a lot near the Ferris wheel at the corner of Nassau and Centennial Olympic Park Drive.

A building once stood there but it was destroyed by the tornado. Then the site became a parking lot and now Montgomery said, it's an eyesore.
