Parking at Ponce City Market

08 18 2015 | Posted in General

With shops beginning to open and construction of Central Food Hall moving right along, we are looking forward to welcoming you to experience all that PCM has to offer.

There are many ways to get to Ponce City Market – by bike, on foot, using public transportation, and by car.  As always, we encourage visitors to consider using alternative transportation, but are launching a paid parking program to ensure that the ample parking onsite is reserved for guests of Ponce City Market.  We’re excited to utilize this program to support our friends at the Atlanta BeltLine and will be donating the first $1 of every session started in Parkmobile.

Beginning October 1, visitors must pay for parking upon arrival using either the Parkmobile app or the pay-on-foot stations.  This means visitors should pay for parking before leaving their cars to enjoy the recently opened shops.

While pay-on-foot stations are located throughtout Ponce City Market, we recommend trying the Parkmobile app for a few reasons:

  • The Parkmobile app will remind you when your session is about to expire, allowing you to add more time remotely
  • When regular parking fees are applied, your first $1 of every session will be donated to the Atlanta BeltLine
  • You can use Parkmobile to pay for parking easily at many destinations in Atlanta and even around the country

There are two other easy ways to pay for parking:

1. Using a pay station located around the site. You will need to know your license plate number to pay for parking at a pay station, and pay stations do not accept coins or give change. Standard rates apply when paying for parking at a station or by phone

2. Call 1-844-PARK-PCM

Parking is available in the main surface lots, accessible from North Avenue and Ponce de Leon Avenue, as well as the lower level of the building that can be accessed using the ramp in front of Binders Art Supplies.  Complimentary 30 minute parking spaces will be available in specified locations. Look for the signs! Valet service will also be available beginning September 1, and bike valet at the BeltLine entrance will follow shortly after.

There’s still work to be done, but Ponce City Market is moving right along and we’re proud to announce our diverse array of food and retail set to open in 2015. This curated mix of retailers, Central Food Hall purveyors, local innovators and office tenants are coming together to serve the Atlanta community.

We’re building a place that Atlantans can be proud of, where we can reflect on our past and where we can grow together to help shape the future of our city. Take a look at what we’ve got in the works – we can’t wait to share it with you:

 

The Gates are Coming Off…

07 21 2015 | Posted in General

…today.  Monday August 25th.  So you can walk hard-hat free around the property, shop Binders (who quietly opened their doors last week in our construction site!) take classes at General Assembly and drop your kids at Suzuki School in addition to grabbing your daily cup of coffee from Dancing Goats.  Because they’re all open or opening in the next three weeks!

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. Almost simultaneously, the transaction closed on the historic tax credits that have provided the resources to carefully restore the old steel sash windows, hardwood floors and maintain so many beautiful features of this historic site.

So come, meet our first batch of tenants.  Our early adopters.  The businesses who were game to open first.  Art retailer Binders opened their doors last Wednesday and they’re planning grand opening ceremony’s happening in 3 weeks! Tech meet up facility General Assembly is already doing meet and greets and will be starting classes in September.  Today, the 150ish parents who have enrolled their children in The Suzuki School preschool will get to mix and meet instructors that their kids will see every day starting after Labor Day.   Our first tenant in the big brick building, the building’s first office athenahealth will move 200 employees into the building September 22, the same day food trucks will start bringing lunch to the hungry masses each day at Ponce City Market.  In October-January we’ll see our first wave of residents who signed leases to the Flats as they start their move in.  This new budding community of Flats residents and workers at the office will be granted exclusive access to the BeltLine from the property – the same access the public will get early next year.

But we’re not done…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.  First you’ll see announcements about more food hall purveyors and retailers in the big brick building as well as the BeltLine rail shed…then more office folks move in before end of year.  In spring of next year there will be a big wave of restaurants and the Central Food Hall will open its doors to the public along with the BeltLine bridge connection, the BeltLine rail shed and some retail followed by more retail throughout the rest of 2015 and lastly, the Roof at Ponce City Market.  We’re excited to be contributing to the fabric of the Atlanta area and building a long term community amenity.  We hope you’re enjoying the journey with us as we begin more retail openings in the coming year.

The long wait is nearly over, as of this week we’ve firmed up the plans for landscaping, plazas and the two (yes, two…not just one!) buildings along the BeltLine that are part of the overall Ponce City Market redevelopment.  And we’ve released the contractor to start building retaining walls.

I know, it’s mindblowing.  We have a total of four buildings on the site and TWO of them front the Atlanta BeltLine.  The Shed and the Boiler Building.  But wait, there’s more!  They will have retail and food…..AND with the new Boiler building we’re constructing and maintaining a stair and elevator access by the North Avenue bridge.

Also amazing is the public-private partnership between Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and us (Jamestown) that resulted in a transportation, community and system preservation grant to build a public plaza with native trees and grasses, an ADA accessible pathway, benches, bike racks and trash cans.  All for public use.  In front of and designed in a coordinated effort to serve the needs of the Atlanta BeltLine transit and trail corridor as well as the new Ponce City Market Shed and Boiler buildings retail fronting the trail.
