So I now understand the new city hall location will be the former Georgia State University facility on Peachtree next to Brookhaven Town Center. The police station will be in a free standing building on Buford Highway near Green's Package Store. Has this been publicly announced? If so, where? If not, this is noteworthy news. From my viewpoint, both site selections look pretty good to me.
