The Historic Pullman Yards has moved forward with a vote from the Invest Atlanta board to unanimously approve a $97 million “inducement” resolution. An article appeared in the Atlanta Business Chronicle (link requires you have a subscription to ABC) that the economic development agency stated it supports Los Angeles-based Atomic Entertainment LLC’s plans for the site.
Those plans included turning the century-old site into a combination of office space, a 110-150 key boutique hotel, restaurants, bars and a sound stage for film and TV productions. (Gasp….another one!) However, this one will be different. Unlike a typical studio that has opened in Atlanta, this studio will cater to the public, said Adam Rosenfelt, Atomic Entertainment’s owner. Unlike most movie studios that are rarely open to the public, this studio will be open to the public.
The $125 million investment on the 27-acre site in the Kirkwood neighborhood should be completed by mid-2020. Pullman Yards has some incredible buildings and features that will be amazing to see repurposed within the new development.
Great to see another project moving along in Intown Atlanta, and especially one that will preserve the history and architecture of this unique site. We’ll keep you posted on more of this development as it moves along!
