Registration Opens for Ninth Annual Downtown Development Day

September 21,2011

Central Atlanta Progress (CAP) and Commercial Real Estate Women Atlanta (CREW Atlanta) will host the ninth annual Downtown Development Day on Nov. 3 at Hyatt Regency Atlanta. The Obama Administration’s Federal Environmental Executive Michelle Moore and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed will serve as keynote speakers.

The event, which runs from 7:15 a.m. to noon, is designed to educate attendees on the progress of Downtown Atlanta’s revitalization and showcase plans for the future. The program includes a Downtown Development Expo, breakout sessions and an optional tour of downtown.

Two awards will be presented that morning: the Downtown Atlanta Economic Impact Award and Atlanta Downtown Design Excellence Award. The economic impact award, presented by Central Atlanta Progress President A.J. Robinson, is given to a company or project that stimulates revitalization as an initiative of its own and benefits a surrounding neighborhood.

With the significant amount of investment in Downtown buildings, CAP intends to showcase the stellar projects that make the community architecturally and spatially unique. The design excellence award, presented by Atlanta Magazine Publisher Sean McGinnis, recognizes achievement in four categories: Community/Residential, Hotel, Office and Restaurant/Bar.

Registration is now open. Tickets are $45 for CAP or CREW members and $400 for a table of 10. Non-member tickets are $55 and $500 for a table of 10. Student tickets are $25.
