The Brannon Hill condominium complex’s days as DeKalb County’s most notorious eyesore may be coming to an end

County officials will begin demolishing two buildings at the Clarkston condominium complex on Thursday, July 13, beginning with a 10 a.m. news conference.

“This phase of demolition will address 28 of the approximately 108 vacated units in various states of disrepair,” a press release from the county says. “Already, approximately 122 units at the complex have been demolished, and 186 are still inhabited.”

Last year, a judge gave the county the authority to demolish and clean up some of the buildings at Brannon Hill.

Brannon Hill Condominium Complex residents in DeKalb County have been desperate for help in cleaning up their Clarkston neighborhood where burned out buildings, piles of trash and debris, open drug deals and violence have been the norm for many years. Some of these sites have been used by private businesses as a dumping ground.
