Newport US RE, a private real estate investment firm that owns multiple south downtown properties, has revealed the tenants that will make up "Pop Up Row," a temporary activation of Mitchell Street storefronts along historic Hotel Row and the first phase in its revitalization project.
"We felt we had this opportunity to offer Hotel Row to an incredible community of creatives in the city and see what they could do with it between now and when construction starts," said April Stammel, vice president at Newport. "Secondly, we wanted to cast a little bit of a spotlight on this historic block in the city and give people a little bit of insight into what historic Hotel Row will feel like in the future."
For four months – April 4, 2019 through July 31, 2019 – Newport will offer free space to local businesses, entrepreneurs, start-ups and artists looking to build their presence. Pop Up Row aims to draw people in and bring vibrancy to vacant storefronts on Mitchell Street before construction begins this fall.
Newport is investing up to $500 million over the next several years across a historic part of the city south of MARTA’s Five Points station.
The kickoff event for Pop Up Row will be April 11 from 12pm – 7pm, in partnership with Central Atlanta Progress.
