The 2011 Atlanta Labor Day 10K is located on Riverview Road in Mableton. The event host is RIVERVIEW LANDING.
What’s going on at Riverview Landing?
The 86-acre Riverview on the Chattahoochee, which will transform a conglomeration of former industrial sites along the river into a mixed-use development including residential, office, retail and light industrial areas. The vision is to create an environmentally sensitive, riverfront community. In which the commercial areas will be combined with the sensitive restoration of the river’s edge and the creation of natural green spaces, parks and trails. When finished, it will represent quite a turnaround for the property. Source: Atlanta Business Chronicle – September 3-9, 2010 (http://www.thereynoldsgroupinc.com/newsjamestown/rvr/9.3.10_abc.pdf)
