The longtime home of Leggett & Platt manufacturing in Reynoldstown has been leveled and its land cleared to make way for controversial developer Jeff Fuqua’s latest project, Madison Yards.
Extending from Memorial Drive to Interstate 20, along Bill Kennedy Way and the planned Beltline corridor, the project is expected to bring a slice of suburbia to the neighborhood.
The long-planned development will include some 550 residences, 80,000 square feet of loft office space, 160,000 square feet of retail, and plenty of parking.
While much of the parking is located within decks—a welcome change from previous projects by the firm—streets faced with blank walls and service drives are still prevalent.
The development will be anchored by a Publix and AMC Theatre, confirming speculation of a change from the formerly expected Sprouts and CineBistro. Also, expect a mix of townhomes and apartments. All in, the project is anticipated to cost at least $250 million.
Fuqua purchased the 17-acre site for nearly $30 million late last year.
With the land cleared, construction should begin soon, with part of the project delivering next spring, per earlier reports.
