Project Highlights

With its ideal location near the Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside Trail and Ponce City Market, this 5,500-square foot structure needed a facelift. Vickers Design Group transformed this formerly vacant retail building, 470 Ponce, into a new boutique space along Ponce de Leon Avenue that caters to the active millennial generation.

Following a structural inspection that revealed an unstable foundation due to settlement and historically poor framing and roof joists – and a car crash that destroyed the façade, Vickers Design Group worked hand-in-hand with the structural engineers to identify solutions. These solutions included underpinning the rear wall, reworking roof supports and refacing the building – while preserving the building’s character and overall integrity. The 470 Ponce storefront was returned to its original size, and the rear entries were updated with new decking and an ADA-approved lift.
