Work Begins on Atlanta's Liberty Plaza

Liberty Plaza will replace a parking structure across from the George State Capitol. The plaza could also one day become home to a monument to Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Last week, demolition crews started razing a 60-year-old, low-rise parking deck across the street from the Georgia State Capitol in what hopefully/doubtfully is the beginning of a new trend," reports Josh Green.

The demolition is the initial step in the Liberty Plaza project—the first major improvement to Capitol Hill since the late 1970s.

"The parking area will be supplanted by an outdoor space for protesting, rallying or just relaxing called Liberty Plaza. With room for 4,500 fiery nonconformists, the park could also become home to a planned Martin Luther King Jr. monument and, if renderings are accurate, new greenspaces and banks of trees."
