...that could be a catchy thread title (hint, hint) for stuff mysteriously demolished around town.

Lets get started.  This was torn down on 21st Street across from Atlanta Pl.  (across the street from the former dirty dentist).

Anyone know what's going in its place?  Im sure we need another bank, 'cause its too small for a casino...

Nothing mysterious about it.....It was a functionally obsolescent multi-use office building.....

Ah, no lighting in the rendering... must be self-luminescent.
There are homes immediately north of the fence, im sure they are hoping for a 24/7 ATM.   Cool

To their credit, the did pretty good, lighting-wise.  Lots of low-glare shielded fixtures, recessed lighting.

Now, on to 15th & Delaware:

Ooooohhhh.  Two of my favorite architectural features.  Ginormous, weirdly heavy cornices, and the ubiquitous square "turret" appendage thingy.

The last time I was in that building, it needed a complete overhaul, but structurally looked good.  All of those buildings had suffered from a lot of deferred maintenance over the years.  Too bad the new owners couldn’t figure out a way to work that into their project.  I believe this is a bank branch going in, isn’t it?

I've heard from neighbors that it's just going to be a parking lot for that pain center across the street...

What a wasted opportunity on that property to go from a pedestrian oriented development with parking in the back to a large surface lot which will never be full.  Not even on TU game days unless they were offering shuttle service.  I bucking hate seas of surface parking.

That might be what the two recently demolished residences to the north might be.

I can appreciate the building might have been far from pristine, but was it comparable to any of the asbestos-laden warehouses that are now a part of the downtown resurgence?
