Development firm Columbia Ventures has opened a new mixed-use office space at the Edgewood MARTA station, according to a press release. Katie Sentell at Pollock Commercial is marketing the property.
The two-story, 7,000-square-foot building is flanked by two other Columbia Ventures projects: Spoke, which was built in 2018, and the upcoming Quill, which will be completed at the end of 2021. It is also adjacent to the Perkins + Will designed performing arts center “A Space to Soar,” that houses youth development program Moving in the Spirit.
This office space is part of the multi-phase, $2.5 million transit-oriented development plan that MARTA, Invest Atlanta, and Columbia Ventures agreed to in 2015.
“The availability of fresh air is repeatedly cited by the C.D.C. as one of the best defenses against COVID-19 in the office and every other window is operable,” Columbia Ventures Managing Partner Dillon Baynes said in the release.
In the past, the development has been criticized for removing parking space in the area for commuters. At the time, then spokesperson Pia Forbes told Curbed Atlanta that the parking space was underutilized, at 30 percent capacity, noting that there was time for community input during the development’s planning process.
The release also states that an outdoor-focused, fast-casual restaurant is currently in the works for the development that will be “outdoor-focused while supporting to-go and delivery options.”
