Historic Saves

An impassioned, insightful Creative Loafing op-ed recounts the confluence of circumstances that led to the historic Trio Laundry building at 20 Hilliard St. being spared last week. It asks how the near-demolition could have happened (here's our on-the-scene coverage) and how similar occurrences might be avoided as Sweet Auburn continues to whet developers' appetites. "This is a great win for preservation and Atlanta residents and visitors," the writer insists. "The bad news is that the win was the result of blind, dumb luck." [CL]
