2016 PRESERVATION AWARDS: MARGUERITE WILLIAMS AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION

PONCE CITY MARKET
Atlanta, Fulton County

Formerly the Sears, Roebuck & Company Southeast distribution center and retail store, the two-million-square-foot nine-story building, the largest by volume in Georgia, was rehabilitated to include retail and office space, residential units, a central food hall and public outdoor spaces. The project, which included inspecting and rehabilitating all masonry features and the treatment of over 1,000 historic steel windows, leveraged over $50 million in rehabilitation tax credits, making it one of the largest preservation projects in the nation's history. The project kept the largest brick building in the Southeast out of a landfill and has served as a catalyst for rehabilitation in its vicinity.
