Entrepreneurs and business partners Pouya Dianat and Dana Xavier Dojnik aren’t afraid of a challenge. That’s why they’re building out CreateATL, a collaboration space soon to be open in Adair Park, at 900 Murphy Avenue, to serve as a home for various community organizations that are addressing the neighborhood’s obstacles — and those of the city at large — and collaborating on innovative solutions.

Here’s how it works: every two years, CreateATL will hone in on a specific challenge that the community is facing, and will invite four to six nonprofits and organizations to work in their warehouse space and address that challenge.

Once they’re up and running, CreateATL’s first project will be to better connect the community to the outdoors, and the warehouse’s tenants could fall into the categories of agtech companies, urban gardens, drone forest planters, hydroponic vertical farms, and beekeepers, all of whom would work and collaborate in the CreateATL space.

The space itself will be comprised of a 7,500 square-foot warehouse, which they’re building out now, and a large deck, which houses a “funky old camper” and a new coffee bar, where community members should be able to come and enjoy the space and learn more about what CreateATL is up to.

Currently, Dojnik and Dianat are on the look out for coffee and food vendors (like baked goods or small bites) who might be interested in a CreateATL pop-up. They’ve got a soft opening planned for June, and hope to roll out their membership-based model in July.
