A land development permit application was filed on Thursday to begin site work for developer Jamestown‘s 500,000-square-foot Ponce City Market expansion, records show.
The scope of work at 675 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE includes streetscape and hardscape improvements, stormwater management, and the demolition of the surface parking lot at the corner of Ponce De Leon and Glen Iris Drive, according to the filing, which lists a roughly $2.8 million cost of construction for the work.
Jamestown’s preliminary work at the site follows its announcement in November of its intent to expand its development of Ponce City Market. The developer’s latest plans include a four-story, 100,000 square-foot office building made of cross-laminated timber, as well as more than 400 units of “hospitality living,” which is a combination of flexible short-term and long-term leases “at accessible price points,” Jamestown announced at the time.
This week’s filing specifies Parcel B, which plans have shown to be the existing parking lot at northwestern corner of the site, as the focus of preliminary land development.
Along with the hospitality and office component, Jamestown’s expansion will also include 25,000 square feet of retail within the ground floor of the office building, as well as 38,000 square feet of shopping and dining retail surrounding an outdoor courtyard. The hospitality living building, too, will offer 13,000 square feet of retail space, Jamestown said last year.
Plans also call for a 2,000-square-foot expansion of the market’s Central Food Hall through a repurposing of former existing office and retail space at the site.
Jamestown didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
