Old Fourth Ward Turns New

It doesn’t take one very long to see that Old Fourth Ward is a special place where the past is not only very much alive in the present, but has also evolved and redefined itself for the future. Perhaps one of the crowning achievements of Old Fourth Ward’s redevelopment and revitalization efforts is the Ponce City Market, housed in the fully-renovated historic Sears, Roebuck & Co. building at the northeastern tip of the neighborhood. Developed by Jamestown–whose portfolio includes the chic Chelsea Market project in NYC–this new mixed-use facility has a marketplace, Central Food Hall, retail shops, living flats, and office spaces. It sits conveniently on the BeltLine and draws in hungry crowds each day from adjoining neighborhoods, acting as a community hub and a proud landmark of Old Fourth Ward.

Smaller in size but just as big of a role played in Old Fourth Ward’s heritage, places like the Sweet Auburn Curb Market (established in 1923) are a testament to the lasting mark of the neighborhood’s bygone eras. The Sweet Auburn Historic District, where you’ll find the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, is a great example of the neighborhood’s preservation efforts. You wouldn’t have thought just a few years ago that Old Fourth Ward would transform into one of the city’s most exciting redevelopment projects. If you look close enough you’ll see vestiges of the neighborhood’s years of hardship and struggle, though looking around at the revived surroundings today, you could say that the neighborhood is experiencing a renaissance of sorts.
