Construction is pressing forward along either side of the Beltline near Ponce City Market, as work continues on two high-profile developments.
Vertical construction is well underway at the site of the former Masquerade, where more than 200 apartments will sit along North Avenue, sandwiched between Historic Fourth Ward Park and the Beltline.
The old Excelsior Mill building looks little changed so far from its long existence as the popular music venue; ultimately, the mill will be reborn as a food hall.
Meanwhile, just northeast of the Masquerade site, work is moving in the opposite direction at the former Murder Kroger location. Since demolition late last year, site prep has been underway to create three floors of underground parking.
Once the site has been fully excavated, work will get underway on the new 11-story office tower atop the reincarnated grocery store. Work isn’t anticipated to finish on the 725 Ponce project until late 2018, with plans for a second phase to swallow the existing surface parking lot along Ponce de Leon Avenue at an undetermined future date.
Below, check out progress made at both sites since January:
