Moving to ITP

Okay – Alert the Media!

Why? I’m thinking of leaving the tranquil world of the NW Territories (Acworth) and buying a condo in Midtown – or Downtown. Actually, I’m keeping the ranch up here but, I want some place to wine and dine the ITP crowd because wine and cows don’t always go together. I like it but, some don’t.

So – Condo – around

    Unfortunately I can’t help you with your search, but as the owner of I can welcome you back to what I consider to be the “real” Atlanta. :)

    Hi. You might consider both Grant Park and East Atlanta in your search. I moved from Chamblee (barely inside the perimeter!) to Grant Park a little over a year ago, and it’s great to be here. Not sure what condos are available, since I bought a house, but I know there are some. I used Dwellings Real Estate ( to find my house; they were excellent to work with and they specialize in intown neighborhoods.

    Good luck!

    Yeah, I was going to suggest East Atlanta too. There’s some new condos going up here and there if you don’t want to go the house route. Or you could live close to the village.

    I like East Atlanta. I have not looked there yet! Thanks, I’ll check it out.

    A few friends of mine recently moved into condos and lofts near the Fox for that price range. Like the neighborhood and nightlife…

    A friend of mine was just selling a condo in Peachtree Lofts on… Peachtree Street, across from the Starbucks, near 7th. It’s a nothing walk to MARTA, and they’ve got your parking and your exercise room and all that in-house. Last two I watched went for $170-190k.

    Don’t be fooled by the name. Lots of the condos aren’t lofts at all.

    I’d love to have a real loft, (I think). It would be nice to have both a living section and a “studio” style work space. I don’t think I could afford the amount of square feet I would want however.

    But, I will say, I have learned, in recent years, there’s something to be said for having an “office” AND a “home”.

    Yeah, welcome back! Come on down to East Atlanta! There’s plenty of gentrification stations for you to choose from. And I’ll tell everyone not to mug you for the first few months. :D

    Check out Arizona Lofts. They’re not exactly right next to a MARTA station, but it’s a great location. Also LaFrance Street has some lofts. There’s also a few cool places near the Inman Park MARTA station.

    I live in East Atlanta and love it. The village is changing and you can get a lot for you money. I think the loft market is going to be over saturated soon, so it would be a better investment to get a house. If money is no consideration there are some really kick ass lofts in midtown, and it is quite nice to be able to walk everywhere.

    In your price range, check out the six story newer loft building on 11th near piedmont. Theres great large loft unit for sale in there in the upper 300s (probably would take a lot less since the condo market in midtown is so weak). It’s 100 yards from piedmont park and a block from caribou coffee. Its listed by Randal Lautenzenheiser at Atlanta INtown Realty…who is an excellent, non pushy agent by the way.
