Terry's Tiny Tour: Triple-Arched Mid-Century 2520 Peachtree Rd. Before #teardown #preserveatl

I toured 2520 Peachtree Road  (1955) but my video isn't so hot. I want to try again.

In the meantime here's a two minute teaser video of the entrance, the hall, and a tiny bit of a condo.

By mid-2016 construction will begin on the new 23 story "2520 Peachtree."  Pay the old one a little respect before it's gone. If you know who developed, designed, or built it, I'd love to know.


Except for the arches it doesn't make much of an impression if you are going up Peachtree at 45.

I always thought it was a doctors' office, a nursing home or something.

When they announced the teardown, I took a look.

I had no idea.


L-shaped apartments on central hall, three stories tall with parking underneath.

I toured the one it red, a two bedroom, two bath.

Here you go. The video has some music so beware.


Now you know.

  1. I would love to see the original
    model unit images from
    the 50's to get a feel of the original intended mid century feel.

    love the tiny tours! keep them up!
