ATLANTA-It’s a long shot but Clayton County commissioners are taking it anyhow. The county next month will select a developer from a short list of four candidates to redevelop Mountain View, a one-square-mile largely vacant industrial site, about 15 miles south of Downtown and east of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The estimated multi-million-dollar project would include an undetermined amount of office, commercial and light industrial space, built around the long proposed Southern Crescent Transportation Service Center, brokers familiar with the venture tell GlobeSt.com. Another big project driving Clayton County’s interest in the Mountain View redevelopment is the planned Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal nearby.

The Mountain View master plan was drafted by Clayton County economic development director Emory Brock and Robert and Co., an Atlanta-based land planner. The county hopes the transportation center will become part of 9,000-space airport parking facility, according to preliminary discussions the county already has had with City of Atlanta officials and the Atlanta Regional Commission.

The Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal is tentatively scheduled to open in 2008; Clayton County wants its Mountain View project to dovetail with the terminal’s opening, according to brokers who represented individual landowners in the airport area.

Names of the developer finalists haven’t been disclosed. The selected developer’s first task will be to assemble a tract of about 200 acres for the Mountain View venture. The City of Atlanta has expressed interest in selling 90 of its acres near the airport to the County but the developer will have to assemble the balance of the tract from individual landowners, brokers in a position to know tell GlobeSt.com.
