Four years after it was purchased by an active intown development firm, a landmark Old Fourth Ward building has been transformed into its next incarnation and is seeking tenants.
One of Coca-Cola’s first bottling plants at 560 Edgewood Avenue—more recently known as the Atlanta Belting Building—has been remade into Class A offices that meld historic character with modern amenities, according to a Capital Real Estate Group listing posted last week.
Charlotte-based Asana Partners turned the two-story, brick-built structure into a spec creative office project first announced amid pandemic doldrums in October 2020. It’s been rebranded as simply 560 Edgewood to reflect the address.
The 1920s Coke plant was also formerly occupied by leather products manufacturer Atlanta Belting Company. Asana paid $12 million for the 1.7-acre property in 2019, according to property records.
Asana and Capital City revealed plans in 2020 to transform the plant into spec offices with up to 100,000 square feet, adding stories atop the main facility and opening the full project sometime in 2022. Those expansion plans, like the timeline, were later scrapped.
Today the building is a blank palette of 62,400 square feet, spread evenly across two floors.
Office floorplans can range from 5,000 to the full 31,200 square feet per floor, according to Capital City.
Perks of the building include a 4,500-square-foot rooftop terrace with views to downtown and Midtown, walkability to MARTA rail, and 178 parking spaces, according to marketing materials. The BeltLine’s popular Eastside Trail is located about two blocks east, with Asana-owned Krog Street Market just beyond that.
Beyond 560 Edgewood, Asana has remade several buildings along Edgewood Avenue and the BeltLine, including the commercial row formerly anchored by Biggerstaff Brewing Company across the street from the Coke plant and BrewDog Atlanta’s new home in the Krog District.
The company has also reconfigured the Midtown Promenade shopping center on the Eastside Trail near Piedmont Park.
