Easements Atlanta, Inc.
Thank you Department of City Planning and the Atlanta Urban Design Commission for recognizing the Winnwood Apartments with a 2024 Award of Excellence in Historic Preservation. Built in 1931, the Midtown Atlanta garden apartment building was constructed in the Georgian Revival style with brick facades, deep U-shaped footprint with a central courtyard without porches. The structure underwent an extensive two-year rehabilitation that was completed in 2023. The rehab included: in-kind repair of 250+ wood windows, door surrounds, exterior columns/pilasters, cornices and the historic terra-cotta tile roof. Great care was taken to document and preserve the historic landscape design of the courtyard. Thoughtful updates for ADA and life safety code compliance were also included. In line with the Atlanta City Design Plan, the Winnwood added zero new parking.A team effort, we were honored to work with Braden Fellman Group, Office of Design, GBX Group, and Andy Brown/Beacon Construction to bring this project to fruition. The Winnwood - permanently protected by a preservation easement since 2020 and listed on the NRHP 2021.#historicpreservation#atlantahistory#thisplacematters#savingplaces#nonewparking#HistoricLandscapes#atlantagardenapartments#midtownatlanta ...

Easements Atlanta, Inc.
Thank you Department of City Planning and the Atlanta Urban Design Commission for recognizing the Smokestacks Restoration at Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill with a 2024 Award of Excellence in Historic Preservation. The historic smokestacks are a mainstay of the Cabbagetown skyline. Towering over 200 feet tall, these stacks are an integral part of the 1881 Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill property. They provide us with a tangible link to the mill history in an ever-evolving cityscape. The smokestacks underwent a major restoration in 2023 with all work guided by the SOI’s Standards for Rehabilitation. This included removing vegetation with gentlest means possible, installation of new flashing, and in-kind masonry repairs to both stacks with multiple early test mock-ups to find the most compatible option. Perhaps the most challenging aspect was the installation of scaffolding that would neither harm the stacks nor the adjacent historic Power Plant and Building H. The scaffolding was carefully erected via crane and wrapped 360 degrees around each one. Protective netting was added to keep debris and material from falling into unwanted areas. Once the south stack was completed, the scaffolding was reconstructed on the north stack. A team effort, we were honored to work with Tribridge Residential, Andy Brown/Beacon Construction, and The Stacks at Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts Condominium Association.Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill was listed on the NRHP in 1976 and permanently protected by a preservation easement since 1997.#historicpreservation#atlantahistory#thisplacematters#historiclandscapes#cottonmill#cabbagetown ...
