Highlights from prior projects managed and developed by Habif Properties include:
The Mattress Factory ⋅ Beginning in 1981, Habif Properties led the redevelopment of the abandoned Southern Cross Mattress Factory Complex in south downtown Atlanta at the border of the historic Cabbagetown neighborhood. Among the buildings on the Mattress Factory’s 8.5 acre grounds is a structure dating to 1864. Under Habif Properties’ management, The Mattress Factory served as an incubator for some of Atlanta’s most acclaimed artists including Todd Murphy, Tony Hernandez and Rocia Rodriquez. New owners of this property have continued to expand on the original vision for the complex created by Habif Properties.
Bona Allen Building ⋅ Located near Atlanta’s Fairlie Poplar district, this mostly vacant seven-story building was renovated by Habif Properties and its equity partners to become a thriving retail and office complex. After its sale by Habif Propeties, the building now includes Ted Turner’s Atlanta residence, a Ted’s Montana Grill and offices for Turner’s movie production company.
Concord Building ⋅ This office building stood next to the historic Glenn building on Marietta Street in Atlanta. After Habif Properties oversaw the building’s renovation, it was sold as part of the expansion of the Phillips Arena Complex, which is now home of the Atlanta Hawks.
1776 Peachtree Building ⋅ This building was the former site of Atlanta’s landmark restaurant, The Coach and Six. Habif Properties and its partners renovated and re-tenanted the building before selling the asset to new owners. The building continues to remain a landmark on Atlanta’s famous Peachtree Street.
Garnett St. Lofts ⋅ Buildings at the intersection of Garnett and Pryor Streets were once part of Atlanta’s thriving garment district but were left abandoned in the 1960’s when manufacturing facilities moved to more modern distribution centers outside the city limits. Habif Properties participated in the acquisition of many properties in the garment district and attracted such tenants as Kelly’s Seed and Feed Theater and the downtown party space, Studio Central. An entire block of properties controlled by Habif Properties was acquired by the City of Atlanta in 2002 to create the Municipal Court Complex.
M C Kiser Lofts ⋅ This 3 story historic brick structure at 210 Pryor St in Atlanta was built in 1926 for the M.C Kiser shoe manufacturing facility. The property is located one block from City Hall and minutes from the Georgia Capitol, Underground Atlanta and Georgia State University. Habif Properties purchased the vacant building and two adjacent structures in 2008. After successfully managing and leasing the property for 8 years, the property was sold to Gallman Development Group for conversion to loft apartments. The building is now designated as an historic structure insuring it will continue as an icon in south downtown Atlanta.
