In a city famous for being burned to the ground, and then razing its more interesting architectural artifacts with Godzilla-like efficiency, you might expect more flare-ups between onward-pushing developers and those who embrace Atlanta's physical history. That's not to say preservation battles don't occur, many of them years-long affairs. And some of them, like Inman Park's galvanized stance that thwarted a freeway, go down in history. So this installment of our Preservation Watch Heatmap checks the pulse of the more high-profile preservation fights in Atlanta at the moment. The update below contains eight buildings and sites perceived to have significant value, and which are under significant threat. (A nod to the Atlanta Preservation Center for background intel and images). Know of another building or property we should add next time? Drop it in the comments or tell us via the tipline.
