Living in Atlanta

Atlanta has grand old manor homes, up and coming neighborhoods, and top notch tourist attractions like the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola (devoted to the iconic soft drink’s history), and the Atlanta Zoo. Atlanta is home to IHG (Intercontinental Hotels Group), UPS, and Delta Airlines.

There’s a modern downtown, but Atlanta has lots of tree-lined streets that make for attractive neighborhoods, especially when those Georgia peach trees are flowering. Light rail (MARTA) serves the airport and some commuter suburbs. Many of Atlanta’s neighborhoods have that “small town in a big city” vibe that makes it a pleasant place to live, even if you have to commute.

Built in 1881, this five story building holds more history than any other loft building can. And there's nothing cooler then living in history (plus there's a pool and fitness center too)!
