ATLANTA – Georgia’s first Georgia-grown mass timber building utilizing a regional supply chain has been completed. Jamestown, the firm behind Atlanta’s Ponce City Market, celebrated the completion of 619 Ponce. The building features a biophilic design and exposed southern yellow pine timber beams, and celebrates the use of Georgia’s vast forest resources to create a more sustainable built environment. “Georgia history is being made at 619 Ponce with the success of the state’s first locally sourced mass timber building,” said Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock. “With an over $40 billion annual impact and 140,000 jobs, it is no wonder Georgia is the number one forestry state in America. And this new mass timber structure reflects that might. As a member of the Senate Agriculture and Forestry Committee, I will remain a champion for Georgia’s forestry industry and ensure we support sustainable forest management, maintain our economic strength, and stimulate innovation in the industry.”
