J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc. was commissioned to convert the 881 Memorial Drive building into 60 residential loft apartments in Atlanta, GA.
This building was originally built in the 1930’s and served as a base for the Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A&P Grocery) southeastern operations and a bakery until 1976. Today, this building is on the Georgia Register of Historic Sites and is officially a local landmark. All construction had to operate within the guidelines set forth by the National Register of Historic Places. Each loft unit is unique and was designed and constructed to enhance the clean modernistic 1930’s architecture of the building. The building includes details such as exposed original brick walls and floors, industrial windows and wide and bright hallways that complement the buildings soaring ceiling heights. The Owner received historic tax credits for this project.
