Atlanta Stove Works brought to Atlanta a revolutionary idea in the field of cooking – the Barrett Range – made of cast iron.
Atlanta Stove Works was making approximately $500,000 per year.
Under the leadership of Mr. Saunders Jones, sales had grown in excess of $35 million per year with employment of over 500 people.
Atlanta Stove Works closed their doors after almost 100 years of being in business.
The abandoned factory was transformed into a mixed-used development of offices and restaurants.
Tyler Perry purchased the land from Atlanta Stove Works for a reported $7 million.
Tyler Perry officially opened the 200,000 square foot space as Tyler Perry Studios, where he went on to make 16 movies, 14 stage plays, and 5 television programs.
The idea of Krog Street Market was born. Paces Properties purchased the space in October, with plans to transform it in to a mixed-use ‘epicurean center.’
In July, Krog Street Market officially announced its first seven retailers, which included four eateries, one bakery, a florist, and unique gift shop.
In August, “The Cottage,” a 1920’s historic home, was relocated to Lake Avenue & Waddell Street to begin renovations. The Cottage would go on to be the store space of The Collective.
Krog Street Market opened in November to critical acclaim throughout the region.
