Good news for preservationists! Historic District designation means Georgia Tech bookstore could be safe http://atlanta.curbed.com/2016/8/26/...dmark-district

The designation offers protection to the building, and what's more, the owner seems to have heard the hubbub. At the meeting, the owner announced the company has no plans to demolish the building, but will work with neighbors to identify a suitable alternative use.

News of the victory for preservationists adds to growing successes around Atlanta, which have included the Bell Building, the Forsyth-Walton Building, and the Trio Laundry. Meanwhile, the wheels are in motion for the landmarking of another threatened building, the former Trust Company Bank branch at Monroe Drive.
