Beltline Buildings and Plaza – Coming Spring 2015!
07 21 2015 | Posted in General
The long wait is nearly over, as of this week we’ve firmed up the plans for landscaping, plazas and the two (yes, two…not just one!) buildings along the BeltLine that are part of the overall Ponce City Market redevelopment. And we’ve released the contractor to start building retaining walls.
I know, it’s mindblowing. We have a total of four buildings on the site and TWO of them front the Atlanta BeltLine. The Shed and the Boiler Building. But wait, there’s more! They will have retail and food…..AND with the new Boiler building we’re constructing and maintaining a stair and elevator access by the North Avenue bridge.
Also amazing is the public-private partnership between Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and us (Jamestown) that resulted in a transportation, community and system preservation grant to build a public plaza with native trees and grasses, an ADA accessible pathway, benches, bike racks and trash cans. All for public use. In front of and designed in a coordinated effort to serve the needs of the Atlanta BeltLine transit and trail corridor as well as the new Ponce City Market Shed and Boiler buildings retail fronting the trail.
