  1. The Sibley Mill Tenement Housing was, like another property in Old Town, locked into a 30 year agreement for low income housing with HUD, meaning that it could not be redeveloped for any other purpose such as condos, which hopefully the King Mill still has a chance at. Back to the tenements – Jon Aceves with Meybohm handled the most recent sale, as far as I know, but the restriction may still stand. It looks like work is progressing slowly on these, with some units having gotten new windows (and then a few were broken out) – still – it’s something.

  2. Restored properly, The Modjeska would be the most beautiful theatre in the area and maybe in the southeast. It’s the oldest theatre in Augusta and surprisingly, after many years of neglect, the structure is still intact. Need city leaders to step up and find a way to save this important piece of Augusta history.
