The home, along with the 1.024 acres of property rests on, is available for $449,000, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

In other real estate news:

  • Development plans for a tower at 50 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. are possibly in the works again. Before the housing market collapse in the late 2000s, the 45-story Allen Plaza was set to be built for nearly $2 billion, but was later cancelled. Years later, Curbed reports the project was auctioned to Drapac Capital Partners. Now there’s talk a 34-story tower could be built on the property as early as 2020, although there’s been no official comment from Drapac.
  • Eagle Environmental Construction has a $122 million mixed-use development plan for a contaminated site off Whitehall. What was previously Simmons Metal Plating factory is now set to house 512 apartments and commercial space, according to Bisnow. ECC has been remediating contaminated sites for over 15 years now. Because sites like whitehall offer financial incentives from the government, the president of Central Atlanta Progress, A.J. Robinson, thinks the sites will bring forward a new wave of developers.
