Quote:
Georgia State University plans to convert an old building — including a parking garage — into a part of their new technology and media-oriented campus along Park Place, just north of Five Points.

As long as they keep the parking ramps then . Kell Hall with its ramps is slated for destruction, so I'd like to see GSU keep its rampway tradition.

Kell Hall is definitely unique. I really think they should restore it and keep those cool ramps, but I can understand wanting to get rid of it.

Another great historic restoration project by GSU. I don't want to think about downtown without GSU...buildings from Fairlie-Poplar to Edgewood have been saved and brought back to life.

GSU moving forward with Demo of Kell Hall.
Quote:
In its place, the university plans to create a greenway, effectively extending the one-block-long Hurt Plaza to Courtland Street. The move will allow students to traverse the campus from Woodruff Park to many of the school’s main academic buildings without going out of their way.

Kell Hall has its quirks that people pretend to like more than they actually do (it's just an old car ramp, folks), but this plan is a good one for the University and for Downtown.

When you get older, there is a comfort in being able to remember anything from when you were young. And Kell Hall was memorable.

Went to classes, taught a class, and did experiments there as a grad and under grad.

I remember once some workers there decided to dump gallons of some sort of waste down what they thought was a drain left over from the parking deck days, only now the “drain” just emptied into the space above the ceiling tiles of a professor. Flooded his desk, his office, everything with nastiness.

I remember getting lost in Kell Hall so many times as freshman (2008). Took a year for me to find the Starbucks at the very bottom of Kell Hall. I always thought the post office was the bottom, never thought to walk a little further to find one more ramp down.
