Ponce City Market

Have you been following along with the Ponce City Market project here in Atlanta? As the largest adaptive reuse project in Atlanta's history, restoring 1.1 million square feet, it’s one you don’t want to miss. Ponce City Market is set to open spring of 2014 and will bring 700,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, offices, and residential units to the long forgotten historic Sears, Roebuck & Company building. Developer Jamestown Properties, known locally for White Provisions, is dedicated to "preserving the building's historic character and sustining its connection with the community".

“Ponce City Market will reflect the authenticity of the historic structure and the surrounding neighborhoods, returning the building to its prominence as a thriving landmark in the Southeast. The evolution of Ponce City Market will incorporate a pedestrian network, city parks and access to new BeltLine trails, linking dynamic intown neighborhoods with the convenience and comfort of highly desirable retail, dining, exceptional residences and Class-A loft office space.”

A friend of mine and published photographer Blake Burton has been documenting the evolution of the project. As a local architect and photographer, Blake has an eye for capturing the beauty of the structure as well as the essence of it’s previous life. Follow along with the evolution of the space on the Ponce City Market website and Blake Burton Flickr.
