Work Underway on Atlanta BeltLine/Ponce City Market Plaza
posted in Construction Updates, Progress // 06/12/14

Work is starting on the North Avenue Plaza, a project resulting from a partnership between Jamestown (the developers of Ponce City Market) and the Atlanta BeltLine. The Plaza, partially funded by a Federal Transportation, Community, and System Preservation (TCSP) grant, will function as a public space immediately adjacent to the Ponce City Market development, giving users of the Eastside Trail a place to step off the trail and gather.

Ultimately, the plaza will be accessible from the bridge over North Avenue and from the existing access path to Ponce City Market’s rail shed deck. Ponce City Market will also construct stairs and an elevator from North Avenue as part of the construction of the Boiler Building, which they will make accessible to the public (click the rendering below for a larger image).

Ponce City Market is providing a significant amount of funding and construction support to make this plaza happen. In the coming days, Ponce City Market will begin the grading and site preparation work for the plaza and the Boiler Building. In finalizing the plans for this project, Ponce City Market and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. have coordinated closely with Trees Atlanta to address the trees that will be removed as part of this project replacement plan is in place. Once site preparation is complete, construction of the plaza should start this coming fall. The sustainable planting on the Plaza will also include a bio-retention area and native grass meadow.

Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and Ponce City Market will jointly host a study group meeting on June 19th at AMLI Parkside. Stay up to date on this project as it progresses at beltline.org/construction-progress. Look for the sign below to be posted along the Eastside Trail.
