JM. Wilkerson was selected to provide construction services for the adaptive-re-use of the old Sears Service Building located on the corner of North Ave and Glen Iris in Atlanta, GA.
The project involved the conversion of an old parking structure and service center into a new and vibrant retail project adjacent to the Ponce City Market building. With over 52,000 sq. ft. of retail and 48,000 sq. ft. of parking, this project helps to anchor the corner of the Ponce City Market site. Additionally, the project included the shell space for a 23,000 sq. ft. urban school. The service building’s scope of work included the restoration and placement of new concrete structures as well as the finishing out of sales centers and retail locations along North Ave. Other portions of the retail areas were delivered as shell space. Waterproofing of existing basement walls and the installation of a catchment basin was also completed. This was a complex project requiring completion while new tenants opened their companies and were active for business. Additionally, the project was completed as part of the total Ponce City Market package requiring extensive coordination with multiple teams.
