Atlanta shoppers will soon have more options to choose from, as retailers are lining up to grab a spot in big local developments currently underway.
Ponce City Market—said to be the largest adaptive reuse project in Atlanta’s history—has recently signed Binders Art Supplies & Frames for 10,000 square feet. Binders, named one of the finest art supply stores in the country by industry experts, is a family-run arts retailer offering art inventory, creative gifts and frames. Binders will be sharing the building with the Suzuki School starting fall 2014.
“We are committed to creating an exciting, urban and culturally connected experience at Ponce City Market,” said Michael Phillips, chief operating officer of Jamestown, the real estate investment firm behind the redevelopment. “Binders perfectly suits that commitment, allowing the breadth of the community—from fine artists to families—access to tools that allow them to express themselves creatively.”
12th & Midtown also boasts a new tenant, as fashion boutique Raw Denim will add to the retail options offered by the 3-million-square-foot master-planned mixed-use development. The store will relocate from its current Buckhead location to a 1,861-square-foot space at 77 12th, 12th & Midtown’s newest 23-story mixed use tower consisting of 330 luxury apartment homes atop 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Raw Denim will be situated adjacent to 77 12th’s residential lobby facing 12th Street and join restaurants like Taco Diner, Burger-Fi, Fig Jam and Tabla, also opening this fall.
