1200 Ponce is a unique adaptive-reuse community offering both the classic elegance of historic Druid Hills and the modern desire for a luxurious, walkable lifestyle.
In the heart of a rapidly growing metropolis that has seen many classic structures demolished and replaced with character-less new structures, 1200 Ponce is truly a unique and ambitious project.
The initial phase includes the renovation, redesign, and interior modernization of the original church and pre-school buildings that were home to many happy experiences over the years.
Future phases include three very unique and distinct buildings that draw from nearby architectural influences. Collectively, they will share beautifully landscaped grounds and a stellar amenity center – to form one of the most distinctive residential communities in the city.
Construction is Underway!!!
The original red brick church and school building have been part of the Druid Hills community since the early 1950’s. The original structure is concrete and steel, providing an excellent base, which is accentuated with new windows that mirror the original style. The lower level is being converted into an amenity center for the 51 homeowners, including a residents’ lounge, a yoga and fitness center, and more.
Specifically designed to re-establish the original pattern of large mansion houses lining Ponce de Leon Avenue, this site was the location of the first house built in Druid Hills in 1905 - owned by Judge John Candler. The Candler house was demolished in 1950 for the construction of the church and school.
In close proximity to highly rated Springdale Park Elementary, from which it claims its classic industrial modern design.
At the corner of Briarcliff and St. Charles, abutting the Virginia-Highland neighborhood. Its design honors the stacked porch style of many buildings in the area constructed in the mid-1900’s.
