Forgotten But Not Gone: Old construction webcams

13 Apr

Curbed Atlanta’s Monday post about the new construction webcam for the Ponce City Market project brought to mind the time, just a few years ago, when there were always at least a couple of construction cams online. While the cameras for these completed projects are no longer active, many of the sites are still up. You can flip through the monthly calendar drop-downs or use the “time lapse”  button near the center of the top of the page to watch the buildings go from site work to top-out in just a few minutes.

For example, you can still watch the Twelve Centennial Park hotel and condo project go from this:

Twelve Centennial - Dec 2005

To this:

Twelve Centennial - Aug. 2007

Or the dramatic changes between 10th and 12th on Peachtree that took the area from this:

12th and Midtown: March 2007

To this:

12th & Midtown: Feb. 2010


Or more recently, the south end of Historic Fourth Ward Park going from a scubby lot:

Historic Fourth Ward Park: April 2010

To somewhere a lot of people want to go:

Historic Fourth Ward Park: June 2011

If you’ve had enough nostalgia, you can also check out the webcam for the new apartment building going up at 77 12th Street in Midtown.
