Hartz Building

Posted: July 7, 2010 by Little 5 Points - Atlanta in architecture

Built in 1915, as the fashionable Holbrook Apartments, the quadraplex was originally numbered 211 Moreland Avenue.

In 1926 the addresses were renumbered and it became 483 Moreland Avenue as it is today.

Up until the fire, the building looked like this:

Here is a line drawing from the 1980’s showing the first floor porch enclosures. These were done by Earl Johannaber, local contractor and head of Design Science Network.


In 1994, the main part of the work to restore the building took place. On advice of Pimsler-Haas, the architects, a third story was added to create additional rental space. The cost of the additional story was reasonable with the other building considerations in mind. The strong original base could easily support the addition.

See what a great architect can do?
