A brief is a short version of a case study.

Ponce City Market is a 2.1 million-square-foot mixed-use redevelopment of a former Sears warehouse that opened in phases between 2013 and 2015 in Atlanta. The development houses 259 residential units, 330,000 square feet of retail space, and 550,000 square feet of office space. The project was built in a historic warehouse adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine trail and incorporates numerous features to promote active transportation access. The BeltLine is a growing urban project in Atlanta that connects otherwise-disparate parts of the city with a pedestrian path that runs through many of the city’s parks. Ponce City Market has successfully filled almost all of its office space, and its retail and food options provide a vast variety of selections for residents and visitors. The redevelopment of Ponce City Market is a major center for activity between Atlanta’s growing BeltLine Trail and the Historic Fourth Ward Park, which solved the site’s stormwater drainage problems.
