45-acre space to become retail and restaurant mecca.
UPDATE (July 11): Mayor Kasim Reed announces final plans for City Hall East redevelopment
Atlanta’s largest abandoned building will soon be turned into Jamestown Properties’ $180 million Ponce City Market, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle (ABC).
The 45-acre City Hall East on Ponce de Leon Avenue was formerly Sears Roebuck & Co.’s Southern Regional Catalog Distribution Center and is nearly 2 million square feet in size; and that doesn’t include parking decks and other structures.
Nearly 236,500 square feet of the space is slated for retail and another 21,250 square feet for restaurants.
The ABC also reports Jamestown Properties plans to “lure companies that want loft office space.” Click here to view the project’s trademark information.
