Inside what would otherwise be considered unremarkable downtown office space, a massive metal door protects a room that likely once held tons of money.
In The Metropolitan building on Marietta Street, 11,250 square feet of lower-level office space is up for grabs, asking a cool $1.7 million—about $150 per square foot, according to the property’s LoopNet profile.
The for-sale site offers three floors: a 4,000-square-foot basement, a ground-floor dentist office, and a barber shop, each spanning some 2,900 square feet, and nearly 1,500 square feet of upstairs office space.
And within one of those settings: a bank vault straight out of a Hollywood heist movie.
Now owned by SVN | Bell Commercial, the space is housed in a structure built in 1930 that was upgraded during a 1997 renovation—and it shows.
The property, a Class B office condo space with easy access to nearby Five Points MARTA Station, sits next to a downtown Wells Fargo branch about a block from Woodruff Park, near Georgia State University’s Atlanta campus.
Fulton County property records give little indication what the space once held, although the vault suggests a long-closed bank—or something deeply secretive—likely inhabited at least one of the floors.
