For space-conscious Atlanta condo-hunters on a budget, this new Edgewood listing illustrates how to transform airy ceiling heights into bike storage, an open-walled office, and elevated sleeping area.
And how to look pretty cool in doing so.
Named for its La France Street address, the loft complex stands between Edgewood-Candler Park MARTA Station and the promised mixed-use wonders of Pullman Yard, where eagle-eyed development wonks have spotted the presence of heavy equipment this month—and where owners Atomic Entertainment have promised Curbed Atlanta staff a progress update soon.
Unlike barebones, postindustrial loft communities in other parts of town, the amenities at La France Street Lofts, an award-winning Smith Dalia Architects project completed in 2004, are nothing to sneeze at. They include a saltwater pool, 100-foot dog run, gym, and several communal hangout zones.
For a loft that is (or was) essentially a non-cramped studio, it surprisingly comes with two deeded, gated parking spaces.
All of the above isn’t free, of course. HOA fees are $265 monthly.
Other important numbers: $239,000 asking price. And 960 square feet.
In Atlanta, that much space might not impress, but like the clean and simple aesthetic, the use of it does here.
The listing calls the loft “extremely unique” and a place “you’ll never want to leave.”
The latter claim might be a stretch, but the former is spot-on.
