i don’t think they are supplying electricity anymore

does anyone know what is being done with the us electric supply building/warehouse at 915 glenwood*? since this building sits right between my house and my amazing view of the downtown skyline i am selfishly hoping whatever is going on will use the exisiting structure.

after having been dormant for almost a year, i noticed a bunch of cars (ncluding a jaguar) in the parking lot today. seriously, its a great old industrial building in an up-and-coming neighborhood, so maybe we are getting a really trendy eatery.

bob amick, if you are listening, this building would be AWESOME for quad, or quattro or FOUR or whatever you plan to call the next one after TROIS. if you have any scoop, please drop it in the comments.

    I think they are putting in a swingers club or something. I mean they all can’t be off of Fulton Industrial!

    ROFLMAO, dunno what’s going in there but I agree it is an awesome location for a nice eatery.

    Sorry, how’s this: Rich yuppie go home!
    Or rich yuppies stop gentrifying the city and moving into your “hip” little areas driving up costs and forcing the poorer people out. You had your wal marts and school systems. Go back where you spawned.

    hmmmm, well like i said, last time i checked the deed in the fulton county couthouse sure identified this as my home.

    but now that you put it that way, i might give it some thought.

    of course i “spawned,” (that’s an awesome word by the way) in freemont, california, so i am not sure how my employer will feel about that.

    of course one might also look at like my tax dollars and presence are providing enhanced revenue for the city thus enabling the city to provide better services for ALL residents, but that’s nowhere near as fun as name calling is it?

    James – don’t you get it? You can be cool/hip or rich, but not both. Sell the car, quit the job, maybe hope the bank won’t put a lien on your house, and stay in your cool neighborhood -OR- move to Alpharetta, light cigars with $100’s and feel good that your tax money still benefits Fulton county.

    yuppiesgohome is right – its only good to have one type of person in one area. I sometimes wonder how the city is so blue with all this wonderful acceptance and tolerance we have.

    Better city services, my ass. Have you driven West Peachtree Street lately? Roads in Iraq are in better condition. BTW, I am not a yuppie because I rent and drive a 1990s Chevy Corsica.

    I’m definitely no Yuppie but I do make over 100K a yr, drive a SUV (used to drive a BMW convertible), own a home in the Old 4th Ward and am part of the gentry class. If you met me you would be dazzled by my charm, wit and uber-coolness. I am one of the few non-minorities on my street, but on my street I am a minority.

    What does all this matter? The reason is my presence is helping rebuild an area of town that is in dire need of a boost from both an economical as well as social perspective. Hopefully with the advent of the Beltline, the slum row public housing (which is privately owned and whose contract with the city expires in 2008) and their accompanying gang-bangers, drug dealers and crack whores will be moving out as well.

    A vigilant society harbors no criminal.
