The market research conducted by Jamestown indicated young professionals and empty nesters were the targeted demographics. The design followed suit and thus provided hip, lofty living space with privacy and unit amenities all residents would desire.
Leading to LEED
The installation of water-efficient fixtures and landscaping, reclamation of rainwater and other building-generated water, as well as the incorporation of LED lighting and proficient HVAC systems in the base building are all part of Ponce City Market’s goal to achieve LEED Core & Shell Silver certification. Tenants of the FLATS, offices and commercial spaces will be vested in state-of-the-art, sustainable and efficient conditions.
Stevens & Wilkinson had LEED certification in mind when finalizing how the FLATS would be designed. The energy-efficient appliances coupled with efficiently engineered mechanical and plumbing systems will contribute to the coveted sustainable design designation.
As the largest adaptive reuse project in Atlanta’s history, the entire Ponce City Market project is estimated at more than $200 million. The overall project is close to finishing construction with the expected completion in mid-2015.
