Old Buildings

I like old buildings.  It's rare to find an old building being rehabbed in downtown Atlanta.  One of the reasons is the cost is prohibitive.  Spacing of columns in old buildings prevents the 'open' floorplans so popular today.

But look at the brick work on this guy.  It's so much more attractive at its core than today's I-beams and concrete.

I really hope that the slow economy prevents this one coming down before someone with some imagination and a passion for old buildings can figure out a solution that both makes money and preserves history.

And that's a rare combination.
