The Doro

Dating back to 1904, the historic George Doro Fixture Company warehouse complex is now in the process of coming down. Established in 1919, Doro manufactured wood office and store fixtures, partitions, shelving and lockers, many of which can be found in buildings throughout the city today. Doro operated their business for 97 consecutive years before selling their property in March 2016 to Iconic Real Estate Investments.

Rise, a Valdosta-based development firm, is in the beginning stages of a project to construct a new eight-story, 247-unit mixed-use apartment development on the property. Called The Doro, the development will include a 284-space parking garage and a 6,100 square feet open plaza at the intersection of A. Philip Randolph Boulevard and East Adams Street in the Sports and Entertainment District. Also, 4,875 square foot ground floor retail space will be situated at the intersection of East Forsyth Street and A. Philip Randolph Boulevard. An additional 2,065 square foot, outdoor/indoor amenity space would face A. Philip Randolph Boulevard.
