Plans were filed for the wine bar/music venue in space adjacent Dancing Goats Coffee Bar, PCM’s first tenant.
New York-based City Winery is moving forward with plans to open its first Atlanta location in Ponce City Market (PCM).
Jamestown Properties, the Old Fourth Ward mixed-use project’s developer, this week submitted plans to City of Atlanta for the wine bar/music venue’s buildout in spaces S101 and S201, at 650 North Avenue NE.
City Winery will occupy 26,000-square-feet in the same building Dancing Goats Coffee Bar is situated.
Dancing Goats, a popular coffeeshop with several Atlanta-area locations and PCM’s first tenant, is operated by Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters.
City Winery will be built “under” and “around” Dancing Goats, Michael Dorf, founder and CEO at the wine bar/music venue, told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone conversation Wednesday.
At least $2.9 million will be spent in constructing City Winery at PCM, according to the permit filing.
Simultaneously, Dancing Goats has plans to expand “the interior of our coffeehouse into space formerly occupied by the Ponce City Market leasing office,” according to Mike Ferguson, business development director at Batdorf & Bronson.
“We will be temporarily closed for three days the first week in August, likely two to four, for construction related to expanding.”
City Winery is expected to open in November, according to the company’s website, and Dancing Goats is planning a Midtown location, slated to open 2016.
