Just beyond the fringes of downtown and Midtown, an old stone industrial building built in 1910 for the Atlantic Ice & Coal Company has been prepped for new life as a unique loft-office complex.

640 North Avenue, as the two-building complex is called, sits west of Georgia Tech and the Coca-Cola corporate campus, lending new life to a formerly derelict block in English Avenue that housed a wrecking yard for more than six decades. Plans call for a third building to eventually be added.

Touted as a carbon-neutral facility, the original two-story building on the site houses three office suites and features 18-foot ceilings, original stone walls, and heart pine accent panels.

Between the two buildings, there are 17,000 square feet of office space. According to the developer, the first tenants have moved into the development

Work began more than a year ago on the project. At the moment there is no timeline for construction of the third building.
