Preservationists protest hospital plan to raze Life of Georgia building

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, September 9, 2008
Atlanta's Emory Crawford Long Hospital plans to demolish the 78-year-old Life of Georgia building to make way for a medical complex scheduled to open in 2013. But the plans have started to draw opposition, as the Atlanta Preservation Center has launched an online petition signed by more than 275 people asking the hospital to reconsider. The hospital is still fleshing out its plans and does not intend to tear down the building anytime soon. In the meantime, it is conducting an audit of the property's architectural features that might be worth reusing.
