Any red-blooded Atlantan who strolls into Ponce City Market's light-bedecked main entrance and doesn't feel pride in where this city is headed should catch a one-way Delta Air Lines exit. In an era of grand Atlanta debuts — from the city's first streetcar system in decades to a reimagined central Buckhead district — this is the grandest of all, so far. Sure, PCM has been occupied by office workers and apartment dwellers for a while, but in 2015, this Old Fourth Ward mega-project opened its big bricky North Avenue arms and welcomed us — and scores of tourists — to a destination reborn. With a four-year construction phase, cost estimates north of $300 million and a rooftop amusement park that's still months from opening, this landmark complex is the ultimate example that bulldozer-happy Atlanta is finally embracing the value of its own history. Ponce City Market is hands-down Atlanta's Debut of the Year. And it's the feature of our latest Visual Journeys photo essay after the jump.
