Client Objective

Ponce City Market was not just a massive historical renovation; it is the largest adaptive re-use project in Atlanta's history.
The result of the project is a destination mixed-use development with approximately 2.1M GSF under roof. It includes:
* 330,000 SF of retail and restaurants
* 475,000 SF of office space
* 259 residential flats
* 75,000 sf Headquarters for Jamestown Properties

Ponce City Market is  located on the Atlanta BeltLine, a multi-billion dollar rail project designed to connect the city's in-town neighborhoods via an existing 22-mile railroad track that encircles the city.  

In 2016, Ponce City Market was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Ponce City Market is a true live-work-play community. The  mixed-use development includes residential space, a food hall, a corporate HQ, general office space, and retail space.   Ponce City Market quickly became a favorite Atlanta destination.   

NTI was hired to be the technology consultant for the overall project, responsible for designing the cabling infrastructure for all technology systems, WiFi, access control, and CCTV throughout the building and parking deck.  In some spaces, AV was also  an important consideration.   We worked with many firms including our client, Jamestown Properties and 3 different architects - Choate + Hertlein for base building scope, Gensler for the HQ & office space and Stevens & Wilkinson for the residential lofts.

Although the project was actually a single project, in many ways was  like working on several interconnected projects.   Working within the overall schedule with each architect throughout schematic design, design development and construction documents was a complex design coordination task.  Our successful coordination among everyone involved was a critical piece to keep the complex design moving forward on schedule.  

NTI began working on the technology design in 2012  and worked on the project either in design or construction for nearly 4 years.    Before the project was complete, Travel + Leisure ranked Ponce City Market as one of the 25 in its list of "The World's Coolest New Tourist Attractions"  in early 2014.   NTI's services for Construction Administration were completed in 2016.
