Another nice addition to Atlanta.

Old warehouse facilities along the beltline that was the former location of Tyler Perry studios and the Stoveworks complex which house offices and restaurants such as Kevin Rathburn Steak and Krog Bar are going to be re-purposed as a "Epicurean Center" and a "West Coast" style market. In quotes because there is no way to tell if they are actually going to be throwing fish or it is just a marketing term from the developer. Anyways, the complex will stretch across the Beltline from the old warehouse to the Stoveworks complex.

Plans for the market in the old warehouse from the article:
Quote:
More than one-third of the 30,000 square-foot development, Cochran says, will be a market that will feature "anywhere from eight to 15 market stalls ranging from 2,500 to 1,000 square feet where local operators can sell their wares. Anyone from the florist, baker, to candlestick maker. It's a true market. There are some in Atlanta but we feel like it's an opportunity to truly do it in the same vein as the markets you see on the west coast."
The developer also has plans for a 50 unit apartment building on the property and is hoping to have the market up and running by this summer.

Sounds like a fantastic addition to the area. Love the idea of picking up quality groceries along the Beltline. How 'bout dinner at the Krog Street Market and drinks at Ponce City Market? Whew, 2013 - 2014 is shaping up to be some PHENOMENAL years for Atlanta. We aren't stopping, new additions and improvements are just flowing into this city.

Another great story from CL

This corridor is going to be hot for some years. The projects planned for the area will help in the densification of Atlanta and give new residents a desirable intown location.
And all those people that get on here saying the BeltLine is a dud, or worthless project, wtf? Once transit gets running on the corridor in 10+ years it will be awesome.

Yep. I kind of doubt this project would go through if the Beltline didn't exist. The Beltline is not hype, it will be as defining as the Airport already is to this city.

I hate to compare Atlanta to NYC, but it is our High Line!

Ugh Krog Street? Please tell me there is a charming little anecdote behind that name. Who or what is Krog? But at least it's not a Peachtree or Ferry.

It was named after a German gentleman named Frederick William Krog, a railroad man who lived on Decatur Street. He is buried nearby at Oakland.
