We have been hearing about the deal that Porsche struck with Georgia to build a local plant in Atlanta for a few years now. Well today there is some fresh daylight to whole deal. Porsche broke ground on the new development today. Lots of happy smiling faces as Hapeville expects to receive some 400 jobs (100 of them new) from the Porsche plant. The Porsche plant will also have a one point six mile test track (I'm looking forward to taking a test drive on the track), and a new training facility.
Residents and business owners are very excited about the promise of the new Porsche plant and the economic boost it will bring to the area. The loss of the Ford plant was extremely devastating to the economy of the South Atlanta region. Now Porsche looks to replace that void as soon as construction is complete at the new plant site.
The state has already replaced the road sign on I75 Southbound. The sign formerly know as Henry Ford Avenue is now Porsche Avenue. Today was a huge step forwards to bringing the reality of the Porsche to life.
The Porsche plant is sure to bring a positive to the real estate market in Hapeville. Housing has been really battered there over the last couple of years. We are starting to see some price appreciation in the area over the last three months. Hopefully, this positive trend continues.
