How topped-out ‘Junction’ relates to the BeltLine right now

In 2023, Atlanta development wonks should have a field day in the BeltLine-adjacent blocks between Irwin Street and Edgewood Avenue, where projects like the 12-story Indie condos and the full Krog District are edging closer to opening.

The project in the vicinity with the most concrete opening timeline, however, is also the most recent to top out.

Situated on 300 linear feet of the Eastside Trail, Portman Holdings’ Junction Krog District—a 135,000-square-foot hub of offices and retail where the BeltLine intersects with Irwin Street—topped out at six stories last month. It replaces a vacant lot and is changing functionality of the BeltLine corridor where O4W meets Inman Park.

Where Junction Krog District’s “porch” is expected to bring retail and a kiosk component next to the BeltLine this summer.

Along with three stories of Class A offices, the Junction Krog District building will include 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail in a “public porch” setting, dotted with murals and sculptures. Three chef-driven restaurants are planned for those spaces. Portman officials said last month the project is scheduled to open in July.

Designs call for 206 parking spaces, or about 1.5 spaces per 1,000 square feet. One hundred bike parking spaces with valet service—along with showers for bike commuters who’ll work in the offices—are also in the mix.
