One of two historic Atlanta churches near the site of a proposed new NFL stadium has rejected the city’s initial offer for its land.
The city offered $13.5 million, but Friendship Baptist Church countered with $24.5 million, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said in an interview with WXIA-TV.
Reed said the city couldn’t afford that, but is now offering $15.5 million.
Church leaders declined to talk about the negotiations.
The state is handling negotiations with Mt. Vernon Baptist Church, across the street from Friendship and closer to the site of the proposed stadium. The new home for the Atlanta Falcons would be built south of the Georgia Dome if the churches agree.Officials have said that if they can’t reach agreements with the churches, the $1 billion, retractable-roof stadium would be built on another site, north of the Georgia Dome.
