The Atlantic Star Ice & Coal Co. originally constructed this imposing structure in
1926 and operated the facility until the late 1960s, as one of Atlanta's largest
producers of ice and coal. The project, awarded for its Adaptive Reuse from the
Decatur Historic Preservation Commission, incorporates the existing historic
structure into a mix of nostalgic rehabilitation and thoughtfully designed new
construction that complements the property and the surrounding neighborhood.
Located just blocks from downtown Decatur, the Ice House Lofts are short stroll to
the Square where residents can enjoy a coffee, a pint, some delicious local fare,
and live music.
A combination of industrial and residential finishes make for unique, practical and
beautiful lofts that also offer a great value. Concrete columns, brick with pre-cast
architectural elements, steel and wood provide structure and detail in these
spacious units with 12 to 24 foot ceiling heights.
Finishes such as 42" maple cabinetry, cast iron enamel tubs, Kohler fixtures,
digital appliances and Italian tile baths set the spaces apart from typical loft
The dramatic architecture and abundant natural light showcases the features of the
newly-renovated studio, one and two bedroom loft homes. Monthly rental rates start
in the $800s.
