Central Shopping

The Sweet Auburn Curb Market, originally established in 1918 as an open air shopping center, was established on land cleared by the Great Atlanta Fire of 1917. In 1923, prominent Atlanta Architect A. Ten Eyck Brown designed a fireproof brick and concrete building that quickly became a central shopping center for the local community.

Capital Improvements

In 2011, this historical center was in critical need of capital improvements inside and out. J.M. Wilkerson Construction and SSOE teamed together to successfully complete the 50,000 square foot historical Municipal Market renovation.

Restoration & Upgrades

The scope of work included renovation of public restrooms, repair/replace doors and gates, electrical and mechanical upgrades, lighting retrofit, addition of HVAC units, plumbing upgrades, fencing, redesign of interior seating areas, replacement of damaged glass in windows, exterior lighting restoration of signage and other improvements.

Today the Market continues to operate as a vibrant social and cultural center in the Sweet Auburn District of Atlanta. With retail vendors and restaurants, the Sweet Auburn Curb Market continues to create new shopping experiences and bring together the city’s unique cultures, all while preserving the historic value of this iconic jewel of the city.
