Epic $3.5M Old Fourth Ward property could be home or business

An extraordinary property that has stood tall in the Old Fourth Ward for decades is on the market for $3,500,000.

Originally a bakery in 1921, the brick structure at 442 Cain St. was expanded in 1998 to include enormous windows, secure parking and multiple observation decks. The whole thing is positioned as if it were a massive telescope pointing toward the picturesque downtown Atlanta skyline.

Let’s take a tour:

The ground level, with high ceilings and exposed brick walls, is accessible through three industrial garage doors. Those doors also provide access to a private courtyard alongside the Freedom Park Trail.

The five-level building is 6,720 square feet, with the potential to be expanded to more than twice that size. It is flexibly zoned to allow for different uses, including live-work, studio, loft-office, residential, restaurant and event venue.

According to the listing: “This prominent location also has potential for future development, such as mid-rise luxury condo or hotel development. The surrounding land is a part of the historic Martin Luther King, Jr. National Park, preserving one of Atlanta’s most stunning skyline views.”

The architectural wonder is marketed by Bull Realty. Get more information here.
