Demolition on Murder Kroger is officially underway.

725 Ponce, the mixed-use project that is replacing the grocery store, posted a video to its Facebook page Friday documenting the first day of demolition.

Murder Kroger closed its doors October 28 so that New City Properties, the developer behind 725 Ponce, could ready the land for demolition. A candlelight vigil was held for the grocery store the night before with several thousands in attendance.

Jim Irwin, president of New City, early this week filed a “commercial new” permit with City of Atlanta to build the project from the ground up.

725 Ponce would include 360,000 square feet of loft office space with roof terraces above, a 60,000-square-foot urban-prototype Kroger, and ground-level retail.

The Beltline-adjacent project is expected to open 2018.
