Cabbagetown Condos and Lofts
Living in Cabbagetown
Cabbagetown is an up and coming intown neighborhood north of Grant Park and near Edgewood. The neighborhood was built as a mill town around the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill. The owner of the mill built a small community of one and two-story shotgun houses and cottage-style houses surrounding the mill. As is typical in mill towns, the streets are extremely narrow with short blocks and lots of intersections. Because many of the mill workers were from the Appalachian region, there is a still a strong heritage there today.

History of Cabbagetown
The neighborhood changed following 1977 when the mill closed, and became depressed until the 1990s when metro Atlanta went through its own renaissance. A renovation of the Cotton Mill began in 1996 and turned it into the nation’s largest residential loft community — the Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts — which houses everyone from artists and musicians to business professionals. Cabbagetown was recently in the news when the tornado in March 2008 damaged parts of the loft complex and many of the historic homes and businesses. Today, Cabbagetown is a happy mix of artists and professionals, singles and families, all within its small boundaries. There are great restaurants and nearby shops and, as the community continues to grow, more and more are opening every day.
