Castleberry Hill - Urban Community with History
One of our favorite Intown Atlanta neighborhoods, Castleberry Hill is enjoying a re-Renaissance! Castleberry Hill is a unique urban community with a strong historic identity. The city was named after Daniel Castleberry, a businessman who owns a grocer during Civil War. Daniel Castleberry, is believed to have been an established businessman in the area as a result of his winning the land in 1821 in a Georgia land lottery.
Castleberry Hill was originally part of the renegade Snake Nation community that functioned during the 1850's. Loft conversions began in the 1980's, and by 1992, there were 120 lofts with 150 residents. By the early 21st century, however, Castleberry Hill began another renaissance with major motion pictures and TV series being filmed in the area.
Castleberry Hill is adjacent to and southwest of the Downtown Atlanta. It is a federally recognized historic district since 1985 and became a City of Atlanta Landmark District in 2006. The area, which is made up predominantly of Walker, Nelson and Peters Streets is home to a growing number of small art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, and loft residences
We were excited to see some really cool lofts in the hot market of 10-12 years ago, but then this part of town suffered among the most in the recent real estate downturn.
But we've seen property values start to rise again and now news of a new development including a Hard Rock Hotel.... part of the upcoming Castleberry Park development. The 220-room lodge will be ready to open in spring 2018. This recent development is just putting Castleberry Hill on the map.
Here are some lofts you can score before the Hard Rock makes this the new swanky place to see and be seen....
