Ponce City Market

Ponce City Market is the rehabilitation of the historic Atlanta Sears Roebuck & Company distribution center and its surrounding 15.9- acre site. Established in 1926, with additions constructed in 1932, 1948, and 1966, the complex is the largest masonry building in the Southeast, comprising almost two million square feet of space. After a comprehensive new vision, including rehabilitation and expansion, Ponce City Market opened in 2015, quickly becoming a must-visit destination with shops and restaurants located in the lower levels and class-A offices and residential apartments occupying upper floors. The project has spurred development of the neighboring Old 4th Ward district, and has become a new business center for metro Atlanta; commanding the highest office lease rates in the city.
