Status Report on Medical Arts Building

December 19, 2011

The Atlanta Preservation Center, along with representatives from the Atlanta Downtown Neighborhood Association and Keep Atlanta Beautiful, has been monitoring Atlanta Municipal Court’s activity with respect to the Medical Arts Building at 384 Peachtree Street NE.

At the latest hearing in November 2011, the Court established a schedule for the property’s owners to secure and bring the building into full compliance with the City’s boarding requirements.  Further, “…all boarding and other efforts to secure the building shall be reviewed by the Executive Director of the Atlanta Urban Design Commission….”

The schedule for boarding is as follows:

17th Day of January 2012 – Floors 1 thru 5
14th Day of February 2012 – Floors 6 & 7
13th Day of March 2012 – Floors 8 & 9
17th Day of April 2012 – Floors 10, 11, & 12

Additionally, the property owners will be required to remove graffiti.

The Medical Arts Building has appeared on APC’s Atlanta’s Most Endangered Historic Places list in 2001 and 2011.  The 12-story brick and limestone building by architect G. Lloyd Preacher, who also designed Atlanta’s City Hall, has been vacant since a four-alarm fire in 1995.
