Atlanta Denies Demolition Permit to Georgia Tech

The City of Atlanta’s Bureau of Buildings has denied Georgia Tech Foundation’s application to demolish the 1927 Crum & Foster building on Spring Street.  The Atlanta Urban Design Commission had nominated the property for historic designation and on-line petition garnered over 2,000 signatures to stop the demolition.

The permit denial can be appealed to the Board of Zoning Adjustments.

    The City of Atlanta is changing the rules during the game. The city nominated the building for landmark status AFTER the application for approval to demolish was submitted. Even a child understands that this is unfair. I have no comment on whether the building ought to be preserved. But its not fair to do it this way. By the way, great BLOG.
