What’s a more ubiquitous Atlanta phrase: “It beats what was there before,” or, “None of this used to be here”?

Either way, both de facto ATL mottos could arguably be applied to the rapidly developing Krog District/Studioplex/Edgewood Avenue-meets-BeltLine area as much as any place in the city right now. Which means it’s high time for another installment of our aerial tours series.

Situated between Irwin Street and DeKalb Avenue, these blocks offer a trifecta of high-powered selling points: the prestige of Inman Park, the history and scrappy hipness of Old Fourth Ward, and the investment vortex that is any paved Atlanta BeltLine path.  

In the gallery above, find a quick photo essay compiled at sunset over a formerly desolate warehouse district. Projects highlighted include, among others, Junction Krog Street, the Residences at Studioplex, the Krog District, the 678 Edgewood apartments, and the tallest of the lot, the 12-story Indie building, a rare stack of for-sale condos. Please enjoy the flight.
