The former Ironized Yeast Company building (later purchased by cough-syrup makers Creomulsion) at the corner of Glen Iris Drive and Ralph McGill Boulevard might be knocked down to make way for townhomes. According to a report in Curbed Atlanta, developer John Weiland wants to build up to 28 townhomes on the 1.5 acre site.
Dating from 1929, the factory building (which sort of resembles a school with its arched doorways and multi-pane windows) has been empty for years, but has recently been used as a film set.

  1. Wait- I think this building was also used as a school for African-american girls at some point,too. I think it’s on the list of buildings to preserve from the BeltLine Historic Resources survey.

  2. Wow, the pictures make the building look great. I love the architecture. It would be nice if a combination of building preservation and revitalization could work hand in hand. A conversion to a better use while preserving the history would be a nice ideal. We will have to wait to see if it will happen.
