Space for an Apple store in the Ponce City Market courtyard could also be in the works.
Jamestown Properties, the developer behind Ponce City Market, has plans to expand the Old Fourth Ward mixed-use development, the Atlanta Business Chronicle (ABC) Friday first reported.
A company spokesperson confirmed the news in an email to What Now Atlanta, but did not have press materials readily available.
The ABC first learned of the expansion at Thursday night’s Fourth Ward Alliance meeting, the spokesperson said.
The Ponce City Market expansion would include at least three new structures to accommodate residential, office space, and a proposed hotel.
There are even talks of a new structure being built in the courtyard facing North Avenue for an Apple Store.
Two of the new structures would be built alongside Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside Trail, across the way from where New City and Kroger are developing 725 Ponce.
NYC-based S9 Architecture, the firm behind Jamestown Properties’ transformation of City Hall East (Sears Roebuck & Company building before that) into Ponce City Market, is designing the expansion.
