ATLANTA—Underground Atlanta just sold for $34.6 million. WRS, a real estate investment company based in Charleston, SC, plans to redevelop the 12-acre site into a live-work shop community with retail, hospitality, entertainment and residential space. The sale will result in $8 million annual cost savings for the City of Atlanta.
