Why buy a brand new car if you can just as easily buy it used? Why purchase new clothing if it can just as easily be thrifted? This basic principle of consignment stores and used car dealerships  can be universally applied to most situations, so why construct an entirely new building when it could just as easily be reused? As areas around Atlanta, such as Underground and the neighborhoods surrounding Turner Field, are gentrified, many buildings are abandoned, creating social, political, and economic disparity. This not only leads to increased crime rates in these areas, but a clear cultural gap between those living in the newly developed parts of town and those living in the neglected and impoverished areas. The solution, of course, is to breathe new life into these areas, but how can that be done?
