What Do You Wish Were Here? The Colony Apartments

The Colony Apartments have deteriorated over the years, with crime and fires among its problems. What should go there instead? Share your ideas.

on N. Hairston Road  "a crime-sore" -- not just an eyesore.

The complex has indeed gone down over the years, with fires being an on-again, off-again problem in the vacant apartments in recent times.

So, what would you like to see in that massive space instead? Another apartment complex? Retail? A live-work-play development? Green space?

Tell us in the comments what you'd like to see at what's now the remnants of The Colony Apartments.

About this column: Stone Mountain-Redan Patch saw this "What Do You Wish Were Here?" column on Berkeley (Calif.) Patch, and thought it would be a good idea here.

If crime is a problem, how about a police substation? Or, apartments under a new management company. Or raze the buildings and put in detached homes, but with lots spaced so you aren't reaching out and touching your neighbor! Or a grocery store.

I love those ideas, Nick! At a recent public safety forum, someone who lives in the area asked about having a police substation there.
