Atlanta Hall On Hold Pending Future Donations

Work on the Atlanta Symphony’s proposed new concert hall in the city’s downtown has come to a grinding halt as the project’s CEO announced yet another reassessment of the location and design of the building. “Fund-raising for the new hall has stalled… Although the symphony has raised a third of the projected cost of the new center, officials have said they need another third to come from city and state government sources. To date, Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin and Gov. Sonny Perdue have yet to budget the ASO’s request.”
