Alongside the business spaces, retail, and restaurants, Ponce City Market also offers residential areas. These apartments, known as the Flats at Ponce City Market, integrate the historic landscape from the building’s origins, Sears and Roebuck, with modern aspects of design. The Flats are located on the upper levels of the market. When comparing the present-day architecture of the apartments (pictured above) with the original Sears facility (pictured below), the structures’ similarities are almost identical. The apartments have preserved the integrity of Sears and Roebuck with it’s brick exterior, industrial windows, and dimensions. When designing the flats, Jamestown properties desired to restore the history, as opposed to bulldozing and covering the site’s roots; the constructors managed to preserve the original building’s prominent qualities while adding complementary touches of modern decoration. For an individual residing in this development, everything they need is located within their building complex. Food, clothing, and entertainment – it’s all conveniently located at Ponce City Market, just a couple steps from the apartments. The quintessence of mixed-use properties and it’s advantages for individuals can be exemplifies by the Lofts at Ponce City Market. The location of the apartments are ideal, with the Atlanta Beltline, Old Fourth Ward, and Inman Park all within one’s backyard. Each loft includes steel-frame windows, european-style fittings, and views of Atlanta. Though the landscape is preserved, the units are full of vibrancy. The floor plans consist of studio, one bedroom, two bedroom, and three bedroom for Atlanta residents. Additionally, due to the Beltline’s presence, the Lofts have partnered with Invest Atlanta to keep the rent at a reduced rate in order to provide equal opportunities for housing along the Beltline. Parking garage access is included in the pricing. Interestingly, because of public funding, the residential space cannot be sold to an individual for ownership, the apartments can only be rented. After another year elapses, the apartments can evolve into condominiums or lofts and be available for purchase. Until then, individuals seeking to reside in an apartment can fulfill such residency at the market.
