Lofts are an inherently stylish blend of old and new, fusing historic preservation and modern luxury to create a one-of-a-kind living space. Open floor plans beckon opportunities for creative décor. Large windows flood the space with natural light. High ceilings lend an expansive feel. Exposed brick walls supply a rugged appeal.
Poetics aside, lofts are cool. And Atlanta, a city rich in history and modern development, offers plenty of lofts available for rent. Many of them are clustered near downtown, but they come in a variety of price ranges, so there’s something for almost every budget and preference.
Here are some of Atlanta's most luxuriously renovated lofts:

Located in Cabbagetown, Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts occupy the former site of the Fulton Bay and Cotton Mill, which was founded in the late 1860s. The community enjoys gated access and an on-site parking garage along with 18- to 20- foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a cat-friendly pet policy. It always helps moving with a furry friend when a community is feline approved.
Nestled in hip Little Five Points, Bass Lofts provides luxury living in what used to be a 1920s high school and gymnasium. Residents delight in a host of modern amenities, including a community dog park, saltwater pool, and 24-hour fitness center as well as individual units equipped with security alarms and 12- to 45- foot (one might even say, lofty) ceilings.

Situated in Old Fourth Ward, the Flats at Ponce City Market boasts serious perks for residents, with upscale kitchen appliances, valet trash removal and dry cleaning, secure garage parking, direct access to the BeltLine, and free shuttle service to MARTA’s North Avenue Station. Talk about movin’ on up!
