'The gates are coming off,' the Old Fourth Ward development announced Monday on its blog.
Ponce City Market announced Monday on its blog the Old Fourth Ward mixed-use development has officially opened its doors to the public.
"The gates are coming off today, Monday August 25. So you can walk hardhat free around the property…"
That's right. You're now free to roam and explore Atlanta's newest mega development.
Binders, General Assembly, and the Suzuki School join Dancing Goats Coffee Bar as the first tenants that are now open or are opening within the next three weeks at the redevelopment of City Hall East (formerly the historic Sears Roebuck & Co. building.), according to the announcement.
"Last week was a big week on the site. After three years of construction we got the necessary approvals from the city to start removing the gates and the hard hat restrictions from the overall site."
On September 22, Athenahealth, the building’s first office tenant, will move 200 employees into the space and food trucks will also be on site starting that day, and residents of the Flats at Ponce will move in October through January.
"We’re already looking ahead and our team is working tirelessly to deliver the next batch of tiered openings and lease announcements in the coming months."
Atlantans should expect announcements about more Central Food Hall tenants and retailers in the big brick building as well as the BeltLine Rail Shed in the very near future.
