Originally built as federal government office building following WWII, Peachtree Lofts was one of Midtown’s first loft conversions and is often cited as Atlanta’s last remaining Bauhaus style building. At one time, it was the largest structure in Midtown and home to multiple government agencies, including the Department of Agriculture and the CDC, among others. Converted to residential in anticipation of the 1996 Olympics, Peachtree Lofts now houses 212 condominium units. Residents have recently installed a gallery wall in the entry vestibule that features historic images of the surrounding Midtown neighborhood. These images will be permanently installed in the building as a valuable way to connect the exciting, dramatic growth of Midtown to its historic, vibrant past.
Tour includes gallery wall in the entry vestibule that features historic images of the surrounding Midtown neighborhood, plus a tour of Midtown’s Laughing Skull Lounge and its secret doorways within Peachtree Lofts.
Architect: Cecil Alexander (Alexander and Rothschild), 1952
