The Best Loft In Atlanta

Jon Real Estate Leave a Comment

There are hundreds of lofts in Atlanta, but my new listing at Giant Lofts is cream of the crop.

Am I slightly biased?

Perhaps.  But I’ve seen more lofts  than Ann Taylor, and this one is the real deal.  Not one of those soft loftominiums, but also not so rough-and-tumble that you still feel like you’re standing on the manufacturing floor.  This one’s a stunner- from the moment you step inside and peep two walls of windows, you know that you’re somewhere special.  So special, that it was hard for me to put in words just how cool Giant Lofts #502 is.  Figured I might as well enlist the help of my client- who better to testify to this loft’s overall awesomeness…

Q.  According to your Realtor, your loft is the best in Atlanta.  What makes it so cool?

A.  First, there’s its size.  The loft is an incredible 1550 square feet, which is about the size of an Intown house and larger than many 2 bedroom condos.   It’s open and airy. The loft’s 16 windows with both Eastern and Southern exposure guarantees that the loft stays light-filled and bright, even on cloudy days.   The location is central to everywhere you want to be. You’re within a short walk, bike ride or drive to many of Atlanta’s hot spots, hip eateries and outdoor spaces.   And it’s close proximity to MARTA and the interstates makes going outside the perimeter, no big deal.

Q. How are the views?

A. The loft has one of the most impressive views of Atlanta. I call it the Eagle’s Nest because of its panoramic views that span from the Georgia Dome, to Downtown, Midtown and all the way down Peachtree Street to Buckhead.   In the coming weeks, the loft’s view will get even more exciting with the addition of the SkyView ferris wheel next to the Tabernacle theatre, which can now be seen from the corner windows.


Q. 24 Hours for a grand culinary tour within 2 miles of of the loft – where are you going and what are you eating?

A. The tour would kick-off with breakfast at Thumb’s Up Diner with their “special recipe” pancakes and a side of bacon or veggie sausage, all topped with a swirl of syrup.   Lunch is a picnic in Centennial Olympic Park with a simple turkey & swiss sandwich or grilled veggie gyro from Park Avenue Deli.   Travel down Marietta to the Westside for happy hour at JCT Bar.  Relax on the patio with a “Pressed for Thyme” cider & gin cocktail and nosh on a bowl of Angry Mussels and a plate of Benton’s ham-topped deviled eggs.   For dinner take a trip across the connector to Italy. Dine on Baraonda’s house-made spinach and egg pasta topped with wild mushrooms and truffle cream sauce or veal scaloppine in a Marsala wine reduction with a side of roasted potatoes.   Not ready to head home yet?  Grab a night cap and a late night snack at Top Flr.  Three words: Duck Confit Pizza.


Q. What will you miss most about living at The Giant Lofts?

A. Living here has been more than just a place to call home.  Living here has been an experience.   I will miss the impromptu Friday night cocktail hours on the rooftop with our neighbors, many of whom have become our dear friends.   I’ll miss all of the unique sights, like seeing the sun rise over Stone Mountain each morning, watching helicopters land on the W and Hilton Garden Inn, and saying “Good night, Atlanta” when the lights on the top of the skyscrapers go dark after midnight.   But, what I’ll miss most of all is seeing the 4th of July fireworks shows from Centennial Olympic Park, the TED, Stone Mountain, Decatur, and Buckhead all from the comfort of my own living room.  It’s magical!

Potential buyers, friends/family of potential buyers and agents: for more information, please contact me directly to discuss further or to set up a showing.  This one is going to move like hot cakes, so let’s chat pronto.
