Forsyth-Walton Building, Atlanta, Georgiaby Wendy Darling
Located right out my window, kitty corner from my apartment, the  Forsyth-Walton Building is an overlooked 2-story Art Deco commercial  building in Downtown Atlanta, Georgia. In March 2010 it got a new  paint job! It used to be pink on the bottom, not green. Anyway, they did  not a bad job painting it actually, so when I went out on a photo walk shortly afternoon, I decided to capture it.
More pics (one from before paint job):
    
Historic Preservation 
This building was endangered a  few years back when the Federal Court of Appeals across the street  (itself a historic Beaux Arts building) wanted to tear it and its  neighbors down so it could build expanded offices. The city’s historic  commission convinced the federal government to leave the block alone and  rather than tear down, to buy and rehab the block of 10-story, less  architecturally unique brick office buildings behind the courthouse.
P.S. I posted this same image very early in the life of this blog. I’m reposting a whole bunch of my own images so if you’re a long-time follower, no, you’re not going crazy.
