North Kirkwood at the tracks and Kirkwood Lofts

Drive west on College Avenue in Decatur. One block past Kirkwood Road, College Avenue turns left and becomes Howard Street. The reward is here:

Build as a track-side commercial building the details are modest but classic. This will look great in another 100 years.

Howard Street has some great houses but I'll save it for another day. Find Kirkwood Lofts, one block east of Howard. This is one of many beautiful recycled school buildings in Atlanta. It sits on it's own hill across the street from a park. You've probably never seen it.
