Development near Ponce City Market continues to surge ahead, which, given the city’s strong economy and PCM’s cachet, should come as little surprise.

Unlike years past, however, that activity isn’t relegated to apartments and parks. New boutique office space and still-rare, for-sale condos are now bound for the neighborhood.

Like 725 Ponce on a smaller scale, the forthcoming Meet at Ponce is offering intown workspace in one of Atlanta’s hottest neighborhoods.

Billed as a “boutique-style, business-oriented meeting and office space solution,” Meet at Ponce opens this month at 620 Glen Iris Drive Northeast, across the street from Ponce City Market.

With more than 5,000 square feet, the facilities developed by SunSpring Partners include private offices, meeting rooms (for four to more than 10 people), and a training room that accommodates up to 40.

Meet at Ponce will use a monthly membership model. Private office memberships start at $2,000 per month, with meeting room memberships starting at $300 per month.

The training room can be rented for $250 for a half day and $450 for a full day. Non-member rates are available based on availability, officials tell Curbed Atlanta.

Atlanta designers Wright Gardner Architect drew up the space, with Crosby Design Group completing the interior design. Localized details include custom meeting tables by Lamon Luther and art by Jennifer Upton.

Memberships include free onsite parking and WiFi. For a firsthand look at the facility, Meet at Ponce will host an open house July 19.

The office space joins another forthcoming development looking to take advantage of its proximity to PCM: The Leon Ponce.

Developed by Urban Eco Group and designed by architects Place Maker Design, this project looks to convert a surface parking lot at 567 Ponce de Leon to a new condominium mid-rise featuring 72 condos, plus one level of retail and office space totaling 3,000 square feet.

According to the development’s website, pricing for the units ranges from the $300,000s to the $600,000s. (Earlier promotional materials pegged the priciest condos at more than $1 million.)

Amenities have been described as a “roof deck,” but a project timeline hasn’t been specified. What Now Atlanta has a look at early renderings over here.

The condo development team is led by Dave Radlmann of Urban Eco Group, whose past projects include the construction management of Glenwood Park and Lindbergh Plaza. Radlmann and partners bought the site in 2016—for $1.3 million, per property records—and have since leased it to Ponce City Market for monthly parking, sources previously told Curbed.

Aside from a few shipping containers, the site’s last occupant was the controversial Phoenix bar, which the city shut down in 2005.

The Leon project would join thousands of new Old Fourth Ward apartments developed in recent years but only a handful of condo offerings. Those include the 29-unit Airline condo project (priced from the $300,000s) and the Ten Park East proposal, where 10 full-floor units are starting at a whopping $2.1 million each.
