Macallan is committed to honoring the legacy of the region's architectural history. We strongly support the preservation of historically significant structures and have undertaken a number of projects over the years with stringent historical preservation requirements.
The most significant historical preservation project was The Bricks in Roswell, Ga. The original structure was built in 1838 and served as a hospital during the Civil War. It featured a designation as the oldest apartment building in the United States and originally housed mill workers near the Roswell Mill. When Macallan purchased The Bricks in 2005, we partnered with designer Lew Oliver and the Roswell Historical Preservation Commission to develop a plan that preserved the integrity of the original Bricks structure while making the property useable for 21st century tenants. We faced many challenges in the construction of this project but successfully overcame them and developed an outstanding example of historical preservation. As a result, Macallan was recognized with a Contractor of the Year Award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
Other historic preservation projects Macallan has undertaken in recent years include a single family tudor style residence in the Garden Hills neighborhood of Buckhead and a major condominium renovation at the historic Neel Reid designed Della Manta / One South Prado building in the Ansley Park neighborhood of Midtown. This is the building where Margaret Mitchell resided up until her death.
