Atlanta, GA –- (RealEstateRama) — Fulton Supply Lofts, a recently completed loft conversion project in downtown Atlanta, has been awarded the 2017 Design Excellence Award from the City of Atlanta Urban Design Commission for its historic authenticity and sustainable design. The property has also been given the first EarthCraft certification by the Southface Energy Institute for energy conservation and sustainability in a multifamily restoration.
Fulton Supply Company opened its restored circa 1923 distribution center and offices in early 2017. The project is now over 90 percent leased. In addition to 74 traditional one-, two- and three-bedroom rental units, Fulton Supply Lofts offers a corporate apartment program.
Located at 342 Nelson Street SW in Atlanta’s historic Castleberry Hill arts district, Fulton Supply Lofts had laser-focus on preserving authentic elements and increasing sustainability during the $12 million conversion process. Through mindful renovations and high efficiency systems, the project realized a 90 percent reduction in energy use. Energy-efficient amenities include an electric car charging station, LED lighting and Energy Star appliances, as well as double-glazed windows with low-E glass, extra-wide walls, blown dry cellulose insulation throughout and high-efficiency heat pumps allowing elimination of ducts.
