So true. And they are planning a protest for something that isn't even fully planned yet.

I finally visited Ponce City Market last week.

I love, love, love the outdoor part facing North Ave. A+

The main bldg. and food court felt a little too dark and purposely made to look vintage.

The color palette with that orange was a little dull for my tastes, and I wish they would juxtapose some modern bright installations and neon lights to really punch against the old structure inside.

The green tile at the men's room looks like late '60s bathroom fixtures.

Inside grade in my opinion: [b] C+

The I-got-mine-F-U-NIMBYism is spreading to O4W

“The surprise is they’re changing from the original designs to these,” she said. “These designs will be taller, mostly to not obstruct the view of the original building.”

She said the previous designs were for a “shorter, fatter” building that would’ve obscured the view of PCM.

Jamestown CEO Matt Bronfman said planning for Phase 2 is still in the early stages.

“These additions have been contemplated since the beginning of Ponce City Market’s transformation, and right now, we’re meeting with neighbors, sharing ideas, and seeking feedback to incorporate into the plan,” he said. “Ponce City Market was built for the community, and with this next chapter, we’re continuing to allocate 20 percent of residential units as affordable housing alongside prioritizing free events, greenspace, access to alternative transportation, and honoring the history and original architecture of the building.”

Rose said while the increased density at the site is appealing to Fourth Ward residents, the overall plan is getting “mixed reviews.”

“Folks want to see increased transit in the area,” Rose said. “Some people are upset about any tall buildings going in, especially in Fourth Ward.”

Glass and tall heights are odd. Doesn't fit in with the character of the old building.

It's a modern compliment to the brick structure.

I think it looks fine. Plus, next door will look this way regardless of what Jamestown does.


Much better than the parking lot or nothing but parking lot these spaces already occupy

Modern-built buildings should have modern designs; I don't know why this is such a controversial concept. Love to see them adding more height to the property; it will be a nice complement to 725 Ponce.

Something like this sure would be a nicer fit for the courtyard space than what's shown in the rendering.

I totally agree with everything you said.

The proposed highrises look appropriate to the site, and blend nicely with the old brick buildings. Notice that their requested rezoning ups residential window coverage to exteriors substantially. The buildings look similar to the fantastic reno of the Aaron's building in Buckhead, and give off a newish industrial vibe.

And please tell where that beautiful jewel box of a building is?
