  Late last year, Jamestown unveiled new plans for Ponce City Market, the wildly popular and successful redevelopment along the Atlanta BeltLine in the heart of the city. The expansion project is designed to incorporate environmentally thoughtful initiatives and focus on efforts to reduce their environmental impact while supporting the community. The project will be built utilizing cross-laminated timber (CLT), and the desire is for the timber to be sourced from trees grown on Jamestown’s land base here in Georgia.
