Fairmount Market

Atlantic City NJ

Fairmount Market is a vibrant mixed-use node that anchors Atlantic City’s Mississippi Avenue Arts District and creates a gateway to future development along the “Back Bay” waterfront. The project site is located at the threshold of the A.C. Expressway’s downtown terminus and a short walk from the beach and Boardwalk and major City attractions including the Convention Center, Train Station, Convention Hall, “The Walk” retail outlets and the A.C. Live entertainment complex. In addition to excellent visibility and access for visitors The Square benefits from the adjacent Ducktown neighborhood’s rich network of local eateries, nightlife and services. This concentration of regional attractions and local services position Fairmount Market to be the heart of a developing in-town arts and entertainment district.

A true mixed-use development Fairmount Market includes 300,000 s.f. of Class ‘A’ office-space, over 35,000 sf of retail space, and 78 residential units. The development is organized around a unique public space that provides the Arts District and Ducktown neighborhood with a “Town Square”. Entered through a fountain Plaza the central square is a richly textured outdoor room that is activated throughout the day by residents, workers, shoppers and passers-by. This intimate square provides a new venue for staging events in Atlantic City including farmers markets, acoustical performances, festivals and other public gatherings.

The structures surrounding the square are designed to reflect an urbane authenticity, which stands in contrast to the theatrical environment of nearby casinos. Masonry, metal panels and glass provide a contemporary and urban aesthetic. The residential buildings are richly textured and scaled to respect the diverse vernacular of residential and industrial buildings in Ducktown. The office building, with its distinctive acute tower at the intersection of Fairmount and Mississippi serves as a beacon for the development and a new landmark for the arts district and Atlantic City.
