Jamestown Properties

Ponce City Market Tour

In 1926, the iconic 2 million square feet brick building located at 625 Ponce de Leon Avenue was built by Sears, Roebuck & Co. as a warehouse/catalog distribution center and retail store. Sears closed the retail store in 1979 and operated the warehouse until the late 1980s. The building was purchased by the City of Atlanta in 1990 to house City offices and rental units for Federal and State agencies. The size of the building proved to be more than they needed and in July 2011 it was purchased by Jamestown Properties with plans to renovate and restore the building into a mixed use property of retail, office and residential. Ponce City Market remains the largest building in the Southeast.

This tour is of an active construction site. Reservations are required and you will be required to wear a hard hat.
