5 Morningside Teardowns Done, the Before Pictures.

I'm going to miss the chimney but I never noticed until they marked it for demolition.


Destruction and construction are booming in some Atlanta neighborhoods.

I believe this was a duplex. It's appreciated $230 between 1991 and 2011.

It's a spec house and it sold before it was complete.

This one had a familiar Morningside style.

It's had been added on in a less than high quality way, probably an extra apartment or 2 back there. It's a spec house that sold before it was complete.

This was probably the very last infill on its street. It's on a tiny lot.

It did have a nice little garage. This spec house sold before it was complete.

This became a custom, architect designed poptop and one of my favorite projects. It didn't turn out like the others.

Will this be missed?

This was be a mid-century rancher on an ideal lot for a prestige house.

They just don't build them like this anymore. Now it's an architect designed house.

More later.

  1. Thanks for chronicling these houses. It's good to know what was there before-the history of the neighborhood-whether we like the new house or not.
