“At Jamestown, we pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge of sustainability. Georgia Power was instrumental in bringing us ideas and innovative solutions that helped accomplish our sustainability goals at Ponce City Market.”
In this video, learn how Georgia Power worked with Jamestown Properties to provide sustainable solutions for Ponce City Market, Atlanta’s new mixed-use urban development.
At more than 2 million square feet–including over 500,000 square feet of office space, 300,000 square feet of retail, 259 apartments and more than 2,600 parking spaces–Atlanta’s Ponce City Market is the largest brick structure in the southeastern United States. It is also one of the nation’s foremost examples of historic renovation and adaptive reuse combined with sustainable best practices.
Built in 1926 as a Sears, Roebuck & Company distribution center, Jamestown Properties has restored the building’s prominence as a vital landmark in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward.
“Very early on, we engaged with Georgia Power for practical energy solutions,” shares Jamestown CEO Matt Bronfman.
“From the beginning, Jamestown was focused on sustainability,” says Tammy Harrington, Georgia Power key accounts manager. “We worked with them to create a plan to maximize energy efficiency within the context of a historical renovation. We helped Jamestown and its tenants secure energy rebates, monies that could then be reinvested in various energy-efficiency initiatives. Our commercial and residential programs provided energy savings with the installation of electric heat pumps, electric vehicle charging stations and some of the first LED streetlights in Atlanta.”
