ATLANTA — Avison Young has arranged a 41,288-square-foot sublease for Instacart, an on-demand grocery service, at Ponce City Market in Atlanta. Phil Barry, Hilton Barry, Steve Cook and Jack Kerrigan of Avison Young represented the sub-landlord, Athenahealth, in the five-year lease transaction. Sam Pruitt of Site Selection Group, along with Michelle Galvani and Shan Morris of Wildmor Advisors, represented Instacart. The creative loft office space is located on the eighth floor and includes an outdoor deck area. The 2 million-square-foot Ponce City Market is an adaptive reuse of the 1920s-era Sears, Roebuck & Co. building on Ponce de Leon Avenue, which is located along the Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside Trail in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward district. In addition to creative office space, the mixed-use development includes a food hall, loft apartments and retail space. Founded in 2012, San Francisco-based Instacart operates as a same-day grocery delivery service. Customers select groceries through a web application from various retailers and the order is delivered by a personal shopper.
