In this week's post we are taking a closer look at the Cabbagetown District of Atlanta. Cabbagetown is located on the east side of Atlanta, boarding the historic Oakwood Cemetery. The neighborhood includes the Cabbagetown District, a historic district listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Cabbagetown was founded 1881 and was originally the home of the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill. Over the years the area has seen some ups and downs in its physical condition. In recent years an amazing transformation has transpired, with many businesses, musicians and artists taking up residence. The area also has its own neighborhood improvement association. Check it out here: Cabbagetown Neighborhood Improvement Association.
We are pleased to be playing a role in the District's ongoing improvements, working with local developer Frank Iglesias of Working With Houses. Founded and based in Atlanta, Working With Houses aims to bring value back to neighborhoods damaged and devalued by the recent housing crisis. Although its work is centered primarily within the renovation of single-family residential homes, Working With Houses also provides direct assistance to homeowners with real estate challenges, purchases bank-owned properties, and assists real estate investors with win-win transactions. Frank is leading a rehabilitation of a home in Cabbagetown, working through the historic preservation process. You can follow Frank via Twitter @workingwithhous and help fund his project - all while earning 10% on your investment!
On a recent visit to the home we snapped these photos. If you are in the area please drive past and see for yourself. The transformation of this property is going to be amazing!
