Before It Was Ponce City Market


This month marked the 90th anniversary of the largest adaptive reuse project in Atlanta’s history – Ponce City Market.

The historic landmark dates back to 1926, when Sears, Roebuck & Co. built a nine-story regional distribution center and retail destination. Located near the Atlanta Crackers’ home baseball field and freight and trolley lines, the building soon became a center of commerce.

The retail store closed in 1979, but the building continued to function as a regional office until 1987. It was partially occupied by the city from 1991 until 2010, when Jamestown acquired the property with ambitious construction plans in mind.
