I’ve made two trips so far to Ponce City Market and have to say I’m pretty wowed. The beautifully-adapted reuse of this 1920’s structure is a must-see and experience. Ideally located Southeast of Midtown, and on the edges of Virgina Highland, Old Fourth Ward and Poncey Highland, Ponce City Market connects these areas with a vibrant social center. Linked by a footbridge to the Beltline, it is the model for intown multi-use development where one can truly live work and play.
Retail including Anthropologie, Binders, Frye, West Elm, Williams-Sonoma, J.Crew, Lululemon, Madewell and Onward Reserve
Offices housing Mail Chimp, Howstuffworks, Athena Health and others
Apartments–The Flats at Ponce City Market features units as small as studios with 575 square feet for $1699/month up to 3 bedroom/2 bath units with 1790 square feet for $3728/month. (As of the writing time of this post)
The Roof will open in 2016 and will feature a carnival atmosphere of games such as skeeball, minigolf and an adult slide along with the great skyline views of course.
Here’s a quick video:
Check the Ponce City Market website for directions and parking information. On a crowded day it’s easiest to go ahead and pay the $10 valet fee. Steep but hassle free.
