Re: “Watch City Hall East parking garage demolition ... in TIME LAPSE

I've had several tours of the building, most recently last Friday afternoon. The old Lee Haney signs and a lot of other cool artifacts (light fixtures, etc.) are currently stored on-site, to be incorporated into the public areas of the project when the spaces are ready. Regarding the way the workers are taking down the garage, they don't want to damage the historic building itself, and they don't want to make a mess of adjacent streets and sidewalks, so they're working very carefully to minimize potential damage.

Correction to lullabelle: The Briarcliff Summit Apartments building (formerly the Briarcliff Hotel, built in 1925 at 1050 Ponce de Leon Avenue), is indeed in terrible shape, but Green Street Properties isn’t affiliated with it in any way. According to the Fulton Co. tax records on-line, the Briarcliff Summit Apartments are owned by Briarcliff Summit LP II. The property is managed by Lee Asset Management Properties LLC – here’s a link to the property’s Section 8 housing profile…
As much as all of us here in the neighborhood would like to see “the old Briarcliff Hotel” sold and renovated, blaming the wrong party for its current sorry state isn’t going to do anyone any good. By comparison, Green Street Properties has done some fabulous projects here in Atlanta and elsewhere –
