At Pollock Commercial, we love cool adaptive reuse projects. But when those adaptive reuse projects are making a difference in the community, they’re even better. Just recently named on Atlanta Magazine’s list of ‘Atlanta Groundbreakers’ is the Commons at Imperial Hotel. In 2014, the Commons at Imperial Hotel opened as a specialized housing community for low-income and disabled adults. The building – which was opened in 1911 as a moderately priced hotel before sitting dormant for decades – offers 24/7 front desk reception and security and an employment resource center. It is also a beautifully restored historic building on the National Register of Places and is seeking a LEED Gold Certification.
