THIS PROJECT IS CURRENTLY UNDER RE-DEVELOPMENT
The Cotton Companies, is bringing Highside Market, an urban infill and adaptive reuse mixed-use development, to Columbus, Georgia, opening its first phase to the public September 2021 and fully opening by Q3 2022. Located at the crossroads of 13th Street and 2nd Avenue, one of the busiest intersections in Columbus, Highside Market will blend new construction while preserving the character of historic buildings on site to create a place, space and experiences that nurture a more vibrant, diverse and prosperous community. The expansive market will be an energetic hub of dining, retail, as well as office and event space, all housed in alluring architecture that embodies and preserves the downtown area’s rich historic roots.
Opening its first phase this Fall, Highside Market will serve as the central connection point for residents and visitors of Columbus. The 55,000 square foot mixed-use destination with four distinct retail, dining, work and gathering spaces will transform the historical site into a thriving community epicenter made for everyone. Highside Market will feature 1.8 acres of full service, dine-in and fast casual restaurants, 20,000 square feet of retail, 10,300 square feet of office space, a green space park and outdoor lounges. Each thoughtfully designed common space will be complemented by a curated collection of programs, events and on-site activations that will bring patrons and visitors together to connect, network and be inspired.
Highside Market’s flagship structure, the 211 Building, was built in 1939 and previously operated as the premier auto dealership in Columbus for 55 years. A central point that will hum with activity – people eating, shopping, mingling, working and connecting – the building’s ground floor will include a bakery, two dine-in restaurants, and an eclectic mix of retail market stalls with office space, pop up space for events and workshops occupying the first floor. An adjacent, circa 1959 Brutalist bank building will be repurposed and transformed into the 201 Building. The former bank building will take on a new life on one of the most high-traffic, high-energy corners in Columbus with a ground floor restaurant, basement bar, and second floor retail or art gallery space. An outdoor common area will provide an added venue for relaxing, gathering and socializing. A ground-up, newly constructed building, the 207 Building, will be home to great food and inviting energy with a ground floor restaurant with expansive windows and sun drenched space, as well as a second story bar with a rooftop deck overlooking 13th Street and the outdoor lounge areas below. The development is completed by the Highside Park and Event Space, a 7,000 square foot urban park with a pop-up airstream bar that will be serving food and libations throughout the day. Each building on the property is easily accessible by foot, bicycle and car with easy and convenient parking located throughout.
