For Immediate Release
LoftLife Magazine Launches In Atlanta
The Loftstyle Guide to Life in the City
New York, NY (May 12, 2008) — Modern Holdings, Inc., a Northeast-based private equity firm, announces the launch of
LoftLife magazine and its companion website loftlifemag.com in Atlanta, Georgia. The quarterly publication addresses a
previously untapped shelter-magazine market in Atlanta by delivering a "user's guide" to living in an urban culture.
"LoftLife is a map to facilitate the latest wave of urban renewal. We are launching during a pivotal time-period when Atlanta's
downtown population is rapidly growing. The desire for open space, good design, and a cultural community coupled with the
presence of endless traffic, an increasing environmental conscience, as well as the anonymity and seclusion of the suburbs are
the main reasons people are opting for a lifestyle of loft living," states publisher Joe Resudek.
In the premiere issue, LoftLife introduces its Board of Experts, including design expert Sherry Jo Williams; Lydia Ivanditti,
Director of the Atlanta Gallery Association; Florent Morellet, a prominent New Yorker and a major catalyst for landmarking the
Meat Packing District as well as the development of the HighLine; and behavioral psychologist, Dr. Charna Mintz.
The cover story by Katie Black explores the history and transformation of The Stacks at Fulton Cotton Mill from its inception to
its most recent adaptation as a loft building, and includes images from the home of Marae Simone, an Atlanta-based "condo
stylist," who purchased a loft in the historic building because of its industrial allure.
Lucy Sexton's feature "Live/Work" provides a guide to easing the stress of transforming an open space and designing an
environment suitable for both life and work.
A piece on the BeltLine project by real estate consultant John-Patrick McChesney takes a look at the nation's largest and most
progressive urban redevelopment currently underway.
Original photography and writing engage readers who aspire to city living and sustainability, industrial preservation, adaptive
reuse, and other issues important to this emerging demographic. In every issue you'll find sections like Wanted, where creative
ideas for furnishing a loft are presented, and Walking Culture, which examines the cultural and community benefits of living in the
city. Design Within Reach, BoConcept, and ZGallerie are among the advertisers in the Summer 2008 issue.
About LoftLife Magazine
LoftLife believes that, in the words of urbanist Jane Jacobs, "in order for a society to flourish, there must be a flourishing city at
its core." The desire for open space, good design, and adaptive reuse combined with the cultural and community benefits of
living in the city are the main reasons readers choose a lifestyle of loft living. LoftLife magazine is a guide to this brave new
world. Beginning in May 2008, LoftLife magazine will appear as a quarterly — its website will be updated daily — featuring original
photography and writing. LoftLife is published as part of a $10 billion media family which includes Metro, the world's largest
daily circulation newspaper globally. Additionally, this group owns The Black Book, a 30-year-old source book featuring the
work of top photographers and illustrators. For more information, please visit loftlifemag.com.
