The Atlas Lofts will consist of market-rate residences above ground floor retail in a centrally-located downtown location. The completed project will offer brand new and modern residential space, including stainless steel appliances and fixtures, in an attractive historic building.
This urban revitalization involves the reimagining of Charleston’s Atlas Building into a vibrant, mixed-use destination featuring 52 premier downtown apartments including a roof-top deck, on-site storage and ground-floor restaurant/brewery, retail and/or office space. The property sits only a 4-minute walk from Capitol Street, the Clay Center and Kanawha Boulevard, and a short 10-minute stroll from Appalachian Power Park and the Haddad Riverfont. Upon opening in 1941, the Atlas Building, designed by Charleston-based Tucker and Silling, was at the cutting edge of modern architectural & structural design, viewed as the most elaborate and up-to-date public building in Charleston. The Charleston Daily Mail referred the Atlas as "Another monument to the Kanawha valley's industrial and commercial expansion, the 8-story office building incorporates structural features which make it one of the most modern office buildings in the entire Middle West and South". This repurposing will reaffirm the Atlas’ historical place as among the most impressive buildings in the City of Charleston, and a monument to the City’s economic resilience.
Pictures and Floor Plans
Situated in the Downtown Charleston Historic District and Central Business District, the Atlas Building is convenient to key downtown destinations. While over 75 dedicated parking spots make driving an ease, with such destinations as Pies & Pints, Appalachian Power Park, Bricks & Barrels, the Clay Center and Black Sheep within a short walk, there is no need to get in a car. Take in a ball game, delicious meal, creative cocktails or a concert, all without leaving sight of your home. When you arrive back, be it from the office, the game or a run by the river, enjoy a cocktail with friends at the Atlas Building’s private roof-top deck. And less than a mile from I-64 and I-77, it is just as easy to skip town as it is to stay in town. With over 15,000 professionals employed within a mile of the Atlas, the location is unparalleled in its convenience to everything needed to live, work and play in Charleston.
