Phelan Apartments Atlanta: Fruit, scrolls, broken pediment...

This trademark Neel Reid entrance is the fruitiest in Atlanta. These are the Phelan Apartments. With the Palmer House next door. They make the intersection of Peachtree Place and Peachtree Street one of the best corners in Atlanta. Architecture tourists won't be distracted by the new midtown skyline. Peachtree cruiser - everybody should be a Peachtree cruiser - will catch the Phelan as they wiz by and wonder. Personally, I love the fruit.

The Phelan is from 1915. Several early apartmetns remain in midtown, many are gone.

It's a not so big building.



Here is another little post about the Palmer House.

Here is modern Midtown, for comparison:
