With so many lofts and loft-style developments going up these days, it’s possible to get picky. For those who are holding out for a reclaimed industrial space in a cool old building right where the action is, there are the recently renovated TROY-PEERLESS LOFTS. Part of the larger Glen Iris Lofts complex across a side street from City Hall East (soon to be lofts itself), Troy-Peerless is a stand-alone, 1929, art-deco, former commercial laundry. Units have exposed brick, open floor plans and mezzanine bedrooms. And it’s only a short walk to a bookstore, grocery stores, restaurants, nightclubs — and the Atlanta police records room.
650 Glen Iris Drive. 404-685-9276. www.atlantaloftco.com.

The General Electric supply building remained in possession and operation of its original owners for 78 years until Rick Skelton bought the structure from GE in 1995. For the past five years, the 48 units, first available for lease and now for sale, are tailored for the environmentally conscientious urban professional seeking ambiance and style. In addition to a swimming pool, residents in the historic Castleberry Hill loft come home to souped-up amenities such as electric car-charging stations, broadband wiring for an Internet connection that puts a T1 to shame, solar panels and an extensive recycling program. less...

Unlike the loft projects that spring up like overnight graffiti, Studioplex gives urban gentrification a civilized and flattering name. The Historic District Development Corp. transformed the 104-year-old Auburn Avenue warehouse into a miniature center of creation, commerce and residence for artists, starving variety included, to manufacture, display and sell their wares and works. Studioplex offers discounted rents to residents who meet certain income criteria. Once in, artists may use their home space as a workshop or a store to craft and peddle whatever they choose. Fashion designers, makeup artists, painters, glass blowers and even a guy who'll customize and redesign the interior of your car, all live and work at Studioplex. The downstairs galleries are open to the public and so are weekly Friday happy hours from 6-9 p.m. less...
