Employment Center Locations
I-20/Candler Road Employment Center
Currently housing the South DeKalb Mall, this exit is well positioned and has plenty of available infrastructure for redevelopment.
Memorial Drive Employment Area
The segment of Memorial Drive between Atlanta and Avondale Estates could stand to benefit greatly from redevelopment and currently only houses underperforming or underutilized retail and commercial establishments.
I-20/285 Interchange Employment Area
This junction of two interstate highways has large tracts of undeveloped land located nearby.
Moreland Area Employment Center
Already a substantial commercial logistics and manufacturing corridor, the Moreland area is close to the I-675 / I-285 Interchange and has room for additional growth.
