Baltimore Block overhaul spruces up 100,000 square feet of office space and will feature 12 unique, multi-story apartments

At the northern edge of downtown, on a short private street between Spring and West Peachtree streets, stands a unique collection of buildings many Atlantans pass on the adjacent Connector without noticing.

Known as Baltimore Block, the hybrid office-residential building is comprised of eight (of what was originally 14) postbellum row houses and a 1980s office addition, topped by 15 two-story apartment units.

Since the addition was built in the 1980s, little has changed about the building, and over the years the facility had become very outdated—think brass everything and indoor planting beds. However, property manager Gamma Real Estate is nearing the end of an overhaul that celebrates the history of the remaining 1880s row homes while sprucing up the office and common spaces.

While work is far from done—plans call for the work to be finished by mid-summer—it's easy to see how this could be one of the most unique offerings in the city. Rents have yet to be revealed.

In addition to the 105,000 square feet of office space and the two- and three-story apartment units atop the building, the owner plans to offer the gussied-up atrium between the 1880s and 1980s buildings as an events space.

Party, anyone?

This story has been updated to reflect that there are 15 residential units instead of 12 and that Gamma Real Estate is the property manager while JLL serves as the leasing agent.
