A taller horizon

February 28, 2007

Valdosta - There will soon be a new sight on the Valdosta skyline.

It's an 11 story building that will be the tallest in the city.

The multi-million dollar project will be built on the corner of North Patterson Street and Roosevelt Avenue.

It will house offices, up-scale condominiums, and retail space as well as a five-story parking garage.

Valdosta officials hope this building will spur a new development trend in the city.  "Land is becoming a little more limited, especially prime pieces of land so building upwards is now the option we'd like a lot of developers to look at as opposed to continuously spreading out single story or even two story buildings," says Planning and Zoning Administrator Anne-Marie Wolff.

They hope the new building will also lead to re-development in the surrounding area.
