Last year, a Texas-based real estate firm scooped up a portfolio of 15 properties that included, among many other parcels, a 23-acre site along the Atlanta Beltline’s under-construction Westside Trail.
The property located at Lee and White streets in West End is one of several large buildings along what’s often referred to as “Warehouse Row.” (It is also home to a corner storefront that offers quite a deal on socks.) The area, along with the nearby former State Farmers Market, has been envisioned as a natural spot for new businesses along the trail project that stretches from Washington Park to Adair Park. Recently a sign was installed along White Street reading “Beltline ^Southwest.”
The building itself is quite a beast. Kronberg Wall, the Reynoldstown architecture firm working on the effort, yesterday gave an idea of how the site could be made more usable: break up the 250,000 square-foot warehouse with a corridor and create spaces ideal for offices and potentially a brewery. According to Bradley Dunn of Stream Realty, the firm is still working on its tenant roster. Any takers?
