6/21/12 * The Hook [full story]
Waynesboro-born John Dewberry, a starting quarterback for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the mid-1980s, and now a well-known Atlanta-based real estate developer, submitted the winning bid of $6.25 million for the shell of the Landmark Hotel in Federal bankruptcy court today.
The tan and handsomely dressed Dewberry met with reporters after the auction, which included bids from development corporation J.B. McKibbon. TRT Holdings, Inc., which owns both the Omni Hotel and Gold's Gym chains, bowed out at $3.5 million. Dewberry purchased the property through his Deerfield Square Associates II LLC.
