ULI Atlanta honors CAP president A.J. Robinson with Dan Sweat Award

September 16,2015


The Urban Land Institute Atlanta selected one of the city’s most precious treasures – the Fox Theatre – for its 2015 Awards dinner on Sept. 10.

At the beginning of the evening, ULI Atlanta Chairman Kevin Cantley, president and CEO of Cooper Carry, gave a poignant history of the 41-year-old “Save the Fox” movement.

Early in the night, Central Atlanta Progress President A. J. Robinson received the Dan & Tally Sweat Community Leadership Award. The late Dan Sweat was a long-time president of CAP.

A funny video featuring Robinson’s former boss – architect/developer John Portman and former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin lightened the mood – but he underplayed his role in shaping downtown -giving credit to fellow team members and civic leaders.
