The rebirth of Underground Atlanta has begun, and fresh renderings provide the most detailed glimpses to date of what an initial phase will bring.

Developer WRS has shared new images with Curbed Atlanta that detail the southwestern corner of the four-block downtown redevelopment, the Kenny’s Alley section near Alabama Street and Central Avenue. It’s called Block 3.

Construction launched last month—four months ahead of schedule, per WRS officials—and is expected to wrap up within a year to 14 months. Expect 150,000 square feet of retail, offices, and communal areas.

Existing uses at Block 3 include the now-permanent home of The Masquerade (where cosmetic renovations were recently completed) and the coworking pop-up Post-Office Cowork and coffee shop at 86 Pryor Street.

Developers say mall-like touches that harken the 1980s (think: escalators and metal screening) will be swapped for street art and murals throughout.
