Shannon Mall Almost Completely Demolished, Construction on Atlanta Metro Studios Begins in March

After three months of demolition, all that's left of Shannon Mall in Union City (shown below) is the old Sears auto care center.

Construction on the first eight sound stages at Atlanta Metro Studios of Union City begins in March.

When completed, the sound stages will total 170,500 square feet. In addition, Atlanta Metro Studios will feature 80,000 square feet of office space.

"Atlanta Metro Studios will provide large-scale film and television content creators the additional benefits of a purpose-built studio facility, central location only five minutes from Hartsfield International Airport and less than 20 minutes from Midtown Atlanta, and a marketing and management team with extensive industry knowledge and experience," said Ed Richardson.

Richardson is an executive with 404 Studio Partners. 404 Studio Partners is a team of film and television production professionals that will serve as the exclusive sales, marketing and operations management company for Atlanta Metro Studios of Union City.

"We couldn't be happier to have one of the largest studio facilities in the state call Union City home," said Union City Mayor Vince Williams.
