A former neighborhood market building that developers have said could become “a longterm staple of Atlanta—the next Mary Mac’s” is being transformed in Summerhill with hopes of welcoming its first customers in decades soon.
Built in the 1960s, the humble 7,000-square-foot structure at 112 Ormond Street now goes by NeighborGoods, a community-centric mixed-use redevelopment a few blocks from Georgia State University and developer Carter’s overhaul of the former Turner Field area.
A joint venture by Haverhill Holdings and the Gimbal Group, the adaptive-reuse project earlier this year brought aboard Talat Market and the Noble Clay Fitness studio.
This week, Gimbal Group managing partner Mike Garber tells Curbed Atlanta the development team has inked its final tenant, a health food concept called POACH Cafe.
“The principals behind POACH are local residents of Summerhill and live a short walk from the property,” Garber says, nodding to efforts to avoid creating another swanky intown destination.
The spaces for the fitness studio and Talat Market, he says, are currently being built out and are on track to open in early 2020.
POACH is slated to come online in the spring.
