Atlanta’s economic development approved tax breaks for the transformation of historic Pullman Yards, paving the way for Atomic Entertainment to acquire the former warehouse for $12 million with the end goal of developing a creative arts campus. The former sugar and fertilizer plant, which later became a rail yard, has become a local destination called Pullman Flats with office buildings, retail, restaurants, performing arts spaces, residential units, and a luxury hotel. Additionally, Pullman Yards will cater to Atlanta’s bustling film and television industry with a new soundstage. Seeking to complement the redevelopment of the Pullman Yards and surrounding neighborhoods, ITP Development Partners LLC, commissioned McMillan Pazdan Smith to guide the entitlement process and create a project that further enhances the area’s live, work, and play appeal.
This mixed-use development will include ground level retail and second level office space with residential living above. In order to make this project a reality, our team worked with the City of Atlanta to rezone the property for mixed-use. Originally proposed as a modern 5-story building with a strong street presence, the resulting design based on community input meetings and development with the ITP is a tiered building form stepping up as the facade pushes back from the street. The project added additional height and includes 6th level units with amazing skyline views and shared roof top greenspaces.
Situated on less than an acre, the 91,240 SF development includes 60 units, embedded parking with 63 spaces, and 19,200 SF dedicated to office and retail.
