And the walls come tumbling down...

well, maybe not. But one has to wonder what exactly is going on in the Backstreet parking lot. Now I know that Loca Luna has plans to remain in the current building until 2007, but the two cranes that popped up at the front door of the shell of its former self is making me nervous. Today they removed some duct work from the roof of Backstreet. But what happens next? I didn't hear of any demolition plans, though the residents at the Dakota would probably have parties just to watch the building go down..... seeing as they had to put up with all the criminals that stumbled out of this establishment in the early morning weekend hours for years. I may have been there once or twice.

Word is that the first of probably two condo buildings set to be erected on the property (yes, we do in fact need more condos in Atlanta) is to be called Trilogy. That is all I know. Bye bye Backstreet....

LocaLuna is closing next month. The crane is, in fact, there for the demolition.

Trilogy? What about my suggestion of Twirl?
