     History
    Exide Batteries began in 1900 manufacturing lead-acid industrial & automotive batteries, with its headquarters in Milton, Georgia. This Atlanta branch operated from 1948-1988, but the factory’s pollution has outlived its production.

    The soil surrounding the area is contaminated with lead, making it a costly clean up site. In recent years, the building has found new life through the graffiti and street artists of Atlanta.

    New boards were put up recently, entrance is significantly more difficult.
     Media Coverage

     Future Plans
    Allene Ave Redevelopment LLC is hoping to build a 300 unit apartment complex on the property.
