A developer of the proposed food hall in downtown Marietta laid out its parking plan Monday.
The 18,000-square-foot Marietta Square Market was announced last week but has not yet appeared before any city body for approval.
The project aims to be like hip, go-to Atlanta spots Krog Street and Ponce City markets, but inside Marietta Station, 68 N. Marietta Parkway NW.
Developers want to build Marietta Square food hall like Krog, Ponce
Concordia Properties detailed its parking plan this week exclusively for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. There will be 363 parking spaces for the development, but not all at once. Of those, 110 will be in pay lots the company doesn’t own.
“We expect many of our daytime customers will simply walk from their offices on the Square,” said Rich Dippolito with Roswell-based Concordia Properties, which is one of the developers.
The Square is about a seven-minute walk away.
There will be 136 dedicated spots for the market, Dippolito said.
For evenings and weekends, 79 free spots will open up off-site. During the day, those are for Marietta Station office workers only.
Condordia and the other two developers, Capital Properties Group and Synergy Realty Advisors, plan to re-configure the space to create 57 new spots.
Cobb wouldn’t be alone with this type of development:
In its overall parking count, the developers are including the 72 spaces in a public lot across Mill Street.
The design will supposedly mirror the Marietta Station’s railroad history, which dates back to 1892.
The estimated completion date listed on its application to the city was March 31, 2018.
Developers hope to appear before the Marietta Historic Board of Review at its April 3 meeting.
Here’s a type of business inside Krog Street Market in Atlanta that would likely be similar to those at the proposed Marietta Square Market:
