The Viewpoint condo was designed to preserve (or at least spare from demolition) this 1923 Neel Reid apartment building on 7th Street.  According to an official press release from 2006, Novare, the developer, planned to restore the building and convert it to “luxury residences.”  Six years later, and the structure sits silent.  Hopefully it doesn’t deteriorate to the point of no return, but things don’t look good.  The nosedive of the condo market hit Novare hard, and they’re now developing an apartment high rise over on West Peachtree.  Perhaps they could show a little love and follow through on making these rentals once again, or at least sell it to someone who will.
