An official groundbreaking ceremony was held this morning for Krog Junction, a mixed-use office building directly on the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail in Old Fourth Ward.
The six-story building will sit at the junction of the BeltLine, Irwin Street, and Auburn Avenue – with BeltLine frontage stretching from Irwin all the way to SPX Alley.
The Portman Holdings project will include 130,000 square feet of new office space, three chef-driven restaurants, multiple balconies overlooking the Beltline, and a 7,000-square-foot “public porch” on the ground floor that will feature murals and sculpture artworks.
Portman purchased the 1.4 acre property in 2018 with plans to build a hotel, but that project was scrapped due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the hotel industry.
Krog Junction is also just steps away from the expanding Krog District, which is under construction on the other side of the BeltLine and will bring more offices, shops, and restaurants.
