A three-story brick building that began life as a Johnson & Johnson Band-Aid factory now hosts what’s being called “the finest luxury loft in Castleberry [Hill],” an airy unit asking $6,500 in monthly rent.
In the 200 block of Walker Street, the Johnson & Johnson Lofts complex is loaded with original wood beams, maple flooring, and exposed brick—all postindustrial charms dating from 1910.
The tri-level rental in question incorporates huge skylights to brighten the interior, plus a custom, floating staircase in the atrium that helps to serve the same purpose.
“It’s been the site of several film and television shoots,” listing agent Lucas Carter, a Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Buckhead, noted in an email to Curbed Atlanta. “So it’s a great chance for someone to live like a celebrity.”
The 2,664-square-foot pad comes furnished, most utilities are included in the price, and both long and short-term leases are available. Added bonuses: SONOS sound throughout the home, a sleek kitchen update, and two reserved spots in the private garage.
Its two-bedroom status (one of them being very open-concept) could limit the appeal for, say, families in the industry. But there’s no denying the private roof deck with views to The Benz and across Midtown would make for a lovely communal hang.
The loft has sold twice since the building’s residential conversion two decades ago—most recently for $700,000 in early 2015, records show.
It’s the highest going rent for a single unit in Castleberry Hill right now, rivaled only (sort of) by this smaller, art-filled space asking $4,500 per month on Mangum Street.
