UPDATE 11/2009: What’s up with the Constitution Building?


A recent AJC article “Transit Terminal Downtown,” since removed from the AJC site (here’s a link to the Google cache of the article: http://ow.ly/zQm7) suggests that

“State and local leaders are interested in using the Atlanta Journal Constitution property for a transit terminal development downtown…”

The AJC plans to move its office to a new home in Dunwoody next spring.

What does this mean for the seemingly abandoned Atlanta Constitution Building site? DOCOMOMO Georgia has long asked the City of Atlanta to consider studying the rehabilitation of the building as part of an overall vision for a new transit development. The building was determined eligible for listing on the National Register in the 1990s and listed on the Atlanta Preservation Center’s list of Most Endangered Historic Places in 2003.

    From the January 2010 Atlanta magazine:

    A handful of years ago, Central Atlanta Progress put forth a “wish list” of older Downtown properties that could be something with a little tender care. No, CAP can’t force action; instead it connected owners to ways (financiers) or means (permits, tax credits). Most of those spots—including the Glenn and Ellis hotels—were redeveloped. But abandoned buildings and desolate strips of concrete still lingered…
