The success of Ponce City and Krog Street Markets in Atlanta inspires developers in Marietta.
The Marietta Daily Journal reports Concordia Properties and partners file plans to build an 18,000 square foot food hall just off the Marietta Square.
Marietta Square Market will be built in a converted warehouse on North Marietta Parkway.
The Daily Journal reports the food hall will feature three anchor restaurants, a central restaurant and bar, and smaller kiosks for food and shopping.
The hall's design is patterned after an old-fashioned railroad depot and there are plans to incorporate a fully-restored 1920s streetcar.
Marietta Mayor Steve Tumlin's excited about the project and hopes it will be in business by the summer of 2018.
"[That area] used to be just car places and stuff, real dirty," Tumlin tells the MDJ. "You can put a shine on that area, especially with this."
