Two new concepts are set to open on the rooftop at Ponce City Market this summer . From PCM developer Jamestown Properties and  Slater Hospitality concepts, Nine Mile Station will be "a modern beer garden" and Skyline Park  will feature "boardwalk-style games and amusements inspired by the Coney Island."

More detail's from today's press release.

Jamestown has partnered with Slater Hospitality, comprised of husband and wife team Kelvin and Mandy Slater, to introduce the restaurant and amusements to the community. The Slaters worked with architectural firm ASD to create a lively and warm indoor/outdoor space for guests to enjoy modern beer garden culinary offerings and spirits, complemented by an unprecedented panoramic view of the Atlanta skyline. Skyline Park, located adjacent to Nine Mile Station, will add yet another one-of-a-kind amenity to the mixed-use community hub. A nod to the nostalgic carnivals of the nineteenth century like the one historically located on the site of Ponce City Market, guests can play a round of miniature golf, test their luck at old-time boardwalk-style games and partake in amusement rides, including a Heege tower and a slide built into the iconic rooftop sign. An elevated concessions menu complete with snow cones, gourmet hot dogs and more will round-out the attraction.

“Kelvin and I are thrilled to be part of this amazing project,” said Slater Hospitality co-owner Mandy Slater. “As soon as we heard about The Roof at PCM, we knew it was the perfect location to express our passion for creating unforgettable experiences through great food and hospitality."

The Roof at Ponce City Market, including Nine Mile Station and Skyline Park, will officially open to the public over the course of summer 2016. Once launched, guests will arrive at the space by way of a manually operated freight elevator, original to the Sears, Roebuck & Co. building.
