Southern Dairies is a loft office redevelopment of a former dairy production facility and the Empire Manufacturing Company Building located in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia.

The primary building was built in the early 1900s as a milk distribution facility. The Empire Manufacturing Company Building facing Glen Iris Dr. was built in the 1939. In the late 1990s, renovation was started to convert the buildings into loft office space. Southern Dairies is often credited as being one of the first warehouse conversions in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta. In August 2002 the building was added the National Register of Historic Places.

The project is located at the intersection of Glen Iris Dr and North Avenue next to the planned Jamestown development Ponce City Market.
