ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Downtown Albany leaders handle some legal matters tonight to get the microbrewery project underway.

ADICA leaders transferred a quit claim deed for the Art Park property to the Downtown Development Authority.
That opens the way for a ground lease on the property with the microbrewery developers.

"Before you can actually give ownership or be able to provide ownership of the property for the actual development of the project, we needed to make sure all of the legal aspects of it were taken care of," said Latoya Cutts, Albany Downtown Manager. "So this was a big piece that needed to be taken care of in order for that ground lease to be effective."

Cutts is working with developers to get an updated construction schedule for both the microbrewery project and plans to renovate the old Albany Heights building into new apartments.
