Atlanta’s ultra-popular Ponce City Market has been added to the National Register of Historic Places, the project’s developer announced Monday.

The landmark redevelopment was built in 1926 as a Sears, Roebuck & Co. store and warehouse on the site of a former amusement park. The store closed in the late 1970s and by the late 1980s it no longer operated as a regional hub. In 1991, the city bought it and moved administrative functions there where it was known as City Hall East.

Developer Jamestown bought it in 2011 and converted it into a mix of loft offices, apartments, a food hall, retail and a rooftop bar and amusement park. It’s drawn big name companies, including athenhealth, HowStuffWorks and MailChimp and retailers including Anthropolgie, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma.

The registry is maintained by the National Parks Service and it is considered to be the nation’s official list of preservation-worthy buildings and places.
