In 2018, Ponce City Market became the first mixed-use category International TOBY winner at the BOMA International Conference in San Antonio, TX.
Ponce City Market (PCM) is a historic mixed-use community hub focused on artisanal food, fashion and technology. Originally constructed by Sears in 1926 on the site of the former Ponce de Leon Amusement Park, the iconic structure remains the largest brick building in the Southeast United States.
Under the leadership of Jamestown, Ponce City Market is the Southeast’s preeminent example of prominent historic renovations emerging as Atlanta’s next thriving urban community. The adaptation of the original building into PCM generated almost 50,000 tons of construction waste. However, PCM prioritized recycling all refuse, diverting over 98 percent of the construction waste from the landfill. Ponce City Market achieved LEED Gold Certification for Core and Shell and has included language in all tenant leases for all tenant types that requires minimum efficiency standards in alignment with LEED Core and Shell (LEED CS) v2009 sustainability goals.
Ponce City Market has received numerous designations and awards including a WiredScore Platinum designation Atlanta Magazine Groundbreaker Award: Groundbreaking Project of the Year, Atlanta Business Chronicle Best in Atlanta Real Estate: Rehab/Renovation, Metro Atlanta Chamber e3 Awards: Built Environment, ARCDevelopment of Excellence, and ULI Atlanta Project of the Year.
