Atlanta’s Historic Architecture

When I found out that my roommates and I would eventually have to move out of our West 14th Street loft, I began exploring different buildings around Atlanta. My hope was that I would find another historic space that would provide us with a similar atmosphere and lifestyle. I realized that with so many buildings to keep track of, I needed to compile a list complete with pictures, maps, descriptions, etc. I collected possible buildings as I rode around the city on my daily commute or sometimes I would explore with the intent of finding new places. I was specifically looking for late 19th and early 20th century industrial/commercial buildings. These were exclusively brick-and-mortar buildings, most of which served as infrastructure to Atlanta’s vast railway lines. I furthermore became interested in finding and cataloging some of Atlanta’s different neighborhoods and districts.

My list is horribly incomplete and only contains buildings which I, myself, have seen and photographed. I recorded the street address and then performed a Google search to find information about the availablity of each building. When possible I include a description of the building, its current status, and what I think is the correct name of the building. Those with the most appealing location and amenities are denoted with a red star.

Atlanta Historic Architecture List

Even though we have now found a place to live, I plan to continue to fill in this list including more detailed pictures and descriptions and expand it as I discover new structures around Atlanta.
