This newly listed unit in a converted mid-century Midtown office building once occupied by the Department of Agriculture and CDC is all about location. In the heart of what the realtor calls "the best neighborhood in Atlanta" (though the Curbed Cup results beg to differ), the urbanite who buys this loft can easily walk to Piedmont Park, the Fox, restaurants, bars, Publix and MARTA. The unit, on the seventh floor of the Cecil Alexander designed 1952 Bauhaus building has a distinct aesthetic that can best be described as "parking garage chic." The exposed concrete ceilings and ductwork are juxtaposed with a far more traditional, though nicely appointed, kitchen. The claim of two bedrooms in the 908-square-foot unit seems a bit suspect as neither of the "bedrooms" appear to have doors. For $190,000, a buyer who doesn't mind a two-bed studio could soon be living in the heart of it all.
