The history of our building

Switchyards Downtown Club
"This area has always been a site of dreams getting real. From a rag-picker’s desire to have a home for his family to a technology incubator that launches design-centric brands for consumers. It’s 151 Spring Street."




Events & programming


The Consumer Show

As the only space in the city solely dedicated to consumer startups, we thought we should host a monthly pitch event focused on consumer startups. #theconsumershow is only for startups that build products for consumers. We highlight five startups and each one will present their business for five minutes with five minutes of audience Q&A for each startup.

Made in Atlanta

A collaboration with Alternative Apparel, Made in Atlanta is a monthly event about the best brands that are made right here in Atlanta. The focus is on the brand story, and more specifically, interesting details that aren't discussed often. This is really an event about how brands are made. The company and its brand is the celebrity of the night.

Friends of Switchyards

Friends of Switchyards is the most tactical programming that exists in Atlanta to increase the likelihood of your consumer-focused startup succeeding. This weekly members-only roundtable provides actionable guidance to B2C founders from the best resources in Atlanta. Each session is focused on one of four tactical areas: product, brand, marketing and money.

Marta

Marta's the best way to get to Switchyards. They're doing a fantastic job getting people to Switchyards every day. Peachtree Center station is the closest stop on the north-south line. Exit via the Ellis escalator (the west one on the right).

Parking - 2 hours or less

Street parking (SP) is usually always available and a close, cheap option near SDC. Cone St. (behind the building) is a good option. Luckie St. (in front of the Tabernacle) is another good option. Street parking is $2/hour (credit cards accepted) or you can pay using the Parkmobile app. After 7PM, a bunch of it is free, but check those signs to confirm. There’s also a surface lot (SL) right across from our building. Like, right across. It's $5 for 8 hours (except during events).

Parking - full day visit

There’s a surface lot (SL) right across from our building. It's $5 for 8 hours (except during events). There’s another surface lot (SL) at the corner of Luckie St. and Ted Turner Dr. NW, which is the cheapest choice if you’re in between 6am and 9am. It's $4 for 12 hours. There's also a deck (D) behind the building at 150 Carnegie that's $5 if you're in before 9am.

Biking

Oh, how ambitious! We have four bike racks right in front of the building and also a rentable-by-the-hour Relay Bike stationed in one of the racks.
