These Four Fell This Week - Teardowns

They aren't tearing them all down but there's a boom. Styles have changed. We're mostly getting efficient 4,000+ square foot American Foursquares with a full width porch and 2-car garage. We'll see what we get on these lots.

This is now.

The week before. The houses to left and right have already been done. Who remembers the cute houses that they replaced?

They tore it down this very day August 1, 2013. I blogged it a year ago when it first went on the market. Great lot in great neighborhood near Oglethorpe, doomed.

Gone by noon.

This is one of  those streets with smallish, un-updated 70+ year old houses on big lots in Morningside. Many were done pre-crash.

This one hurt a little bit. Property tax records say 1910 with about 1,200 square feet. It was photogenic but quite so charming in person. I passed it 100's of times and only noticed the sculpture.


  1. Amazing how these old homes dictate a lifestyle.

    Little storage space.

    A great improvement over today's opulent storage.

  2. FYI, I've heard rumors that the Evans-Cucich House (Peachtree Battle Art Deco) could make way for a new home soon...

    1. I've also heard that it's a goner. At least it has a bit of documentation.
