I recently went to Ponce City Market for my first time! Ponce City Market is a new indoor/outdoor shopping center in Atlanta. The historic Sears, Roebuck & Co. building in Atlanta, built in 1926 was renovated to create Ponce City Market. Ponce City Market is Atlanta’s largest adaptive reuse project and has been reinvented as a vibrant community hub housing various shops, dining, apartments and offices, all while pointing back to the roots of the original Sears, Roebuck & Co. building. Ponce City Market infuses vigor and excitement into this historically-signiﬁcant building, located in one of Atlanta’s most cherished neighborhoods. Ponce City Market is centrally located near Atlanta’s neighborhoods of Old Forth Ward, Virginia Highland and Midtown.
Ponce City Market has amazing shopping and includes some of my favorite stores, including J Crew, Anthropologie, Madewell and Lululemon. Ponce City Market also has West Elm and Williams-Sonoma, two of my favorite home-goods stores. There are also a lot of restaurants that are supposed to be amazing, including Bellina, Brezza Cucina and Farm to Ladle, but I haven’t tried any yet. In addition, the central food hall in Ponce City Market is similar to the legendary food hall at Chelsea Market in Manhattan, which is also owned by the developers of Ponce City Market. The food hall has everything from Georgia and Carolinas-caught seafood, to classic burgers, cold-pressed juice, and locally-made kimchee and Korean steamed buns. The food looked amazing and I cannot wait to come back and try everything at some point.
Ponce City Market is also on Atlanta’s BeltLine. The BeltLine is a former railway corridor renovated into a multi-use trail around the core of Atlanta. The Belt Line has been the largest, most comprehensive revitalization effort ever undertaken in the City of Atlanta. The indoor/outdoor feel of Ponce City Market reminds me of shopping in the Meatpacking District and walking on the High Line in New York City. The High Line in New York City is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side.
