puzzled look if you told somebody you were moving

new housing development that started blossoming
shortly after the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
conversion of warehouses into lofts has now made
its way south of the big city with the
development of the Newnan Lofts at 110 Field
Street in Newnan.
145 units are being carved out of a cotton mill
that traces its roots back to 1888. The mill
employed hundreds of workers until the 1960s when
it was used as a warehouse.
warehouse was abandoned in 1995 and laid dormant
for a number of years until local developers
decided to create a unique urban village near
Newnan's quaint downtown.
residential component of the village features
lofts from 630 square feet to 1380 square feet.
The lofts feature original hardwood floors, high
ceilings and exposed beams.
amenities include swimming pool, controlled
entry, fitness center and a lake view.
units are pre-wired for high speed Internet
access and have oversized windows.

smaller units to $2,000 for the larger spaces.
