105 Sycamore Place, Decatur
Yellow, horse-drawn carts once carried ice and coal to the residents of Decatur from the Atlantic Star Ice & Coal Co.'s imposing structure, built in 1926 to house its operations along the main railway line. The facility operated until the late '60s, then fell into disrepair. In 1999, Braden-Fellman Group began an extensive renovation project, converting the building into lofts as well as building additional apartments. While most lofts in the city are exclusive condo pads, the Ice House Lofts remain rentals near downtown Decatur's square. As an added feature, the Atlantic Star Brasserie is located on the ground floor of the complex and offers upscale dining to residents and other patrons. A blend of old and new, the Ice House Lofts also are in keeping with Decatur's small-town feel.
