The Office of Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has released details of an amended Gulch agreement. The Gulch is the area of parking lots and railroad tracks situated between Mercedes-Benz Stadium and State Farm Arena.

Bottoms says, "our team has worked nonstop over the last several months to structure a deal that would not just bring much needed development to the westside of downtown, but most importantly, would benefit communities throughout Atlanta."

Former State Senator Vincent Fort, a member of the Red Light the Gulch Project,  says "It's really the same deal. The city is still giving away $1.6 billion for a minimum of return."
