The Atlanta Dairies adaptive-reuse project is planned to sprout like a Memorial Drive entertainment mecca (think: a bowling alley, music venues and beer garden) mixed with offices and apartments, and it all could debut within the next year and a half. But for now, it's like a graffiti-strewn, post-apocalyptic zombie habitat. With a curving Art Deco façade on the main building and industrial remnants aplenty, the former milk factory still bears pieces of past lives, including neglected business signs for Parmalat and the Atlanta Dairies plant. It's clear that developer Paces Properties has their work cut out for them, but then again, the company's Krog Street Market hardly resembled a nationally recognized food hall two years ago. Let this photo essay stand as the "Before" to what could be another impressive, post-industrial rebirth in Atlanta.
