Ponce City Market this week announced Pottery Barn will open a new store on the ground floor of 619 Ponce, a new, four-story mass timber loft office building currently under construction on the corner of Ponce de Leon Avenue and Glen Iris Drive.
Pottery Barn, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. portfolio of brands, is a specialty retailer for home furnishings.
The store, which is expected to open at 619 Ponce in early 2024, will retail furniture, bedding, bath, rugs, window treatments, tabletop, lighting, and decorative accessories, according to a press release.
The space, which totals more than 18,000 square feet, will also offer an outdoor patio featuring the brand’s outdoor furniture collections and an expanded Design Studio with an enlarged consultation area for the brands expert Design Crew to assist customers with complimentary design services.
“When we collaborate with national brands, we look for ways to create an experience distinct to our properties,” Katherine Winter, Director of Asset Management at Jamestown, Ponce City Market’s owner, said in the release. “The patio featuring Pottery Barn’s outdoor collections will be special to this location. Combined with the building’s mass timber biophilic design elements, we believe this store will give shoppers something new to discover.”
Ponce City Market first opened its doors in 2015 in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood.
619 Ponce, which includes 87,000 square feet of office space and 27,000 square feet of retail space, is being constructed with local, Georgia-grown timber and targeting net neutral operational carbon, LEED Core & Shell certification, and Fitwel certification. The project aims to “leverage best practices for material specification, prioritizing human health by minimizing chemicals of concern in building materials with special focus on interior high touch elements,” according to the release. Material selections, like mass timber, accented by a natural zinc facade, prioritize embodied carbon reduction and support of the local economy by sourcing materials from within 100 miles where possible.
The new building is part of Ponce City Market’s next phase, which also includes a flexible-stay hospitality living building featuring 405 furnished units with short-term and long-term stay options and Signal House, a multi-family rental building on the Atlanta BeltLine opening fall 2023.
