The transformation of what was once a pot-belly stove and iron pan factory warehouse into Krog Street
Market is a success story for urban adaptive re-use and neighborhood revitalization. When the 100 year old
factory shut its doors in the late 1980’s, the warehouse was abandoned for over two decades until it was converted
into a movie and television studio for Tyler Perry Studios in 2008. When Paces Properties acquired the
building in 2012, a new vision was born to revitalize the original structure by removing all the studio sets and
production facilities, opening the warehouse up to the street, and restoring vast skylights in the central hall.
Structural and architectural modiﬁcations and additions were made to enhance its new use as a market, while
respecting its original sense of historic authenticity.
