The Icebox in Monocle "On the Right Path" issue 73

Introducing the Atlanta Beltline, an urban regeneration project breathing life into the city with its network of pedestrian and cycle paths and public parks. Monocle heads to the newly connect city, now abuzz with social and commercial activity...

Jordy Gamson is CEO of The Icebox, a printer of promotional products headquartered in a one-time ice factory in Inman Park. (The company's name and the building's past life were purely coincidental.) Last year Gamson moved his factory from the suburbs to former metalworks foundry across the street from his offices.  Two large carousel-like machines now print as many as 1, 000 shirts an hour. "A lot of my workforce lives on or near the BeltLine," he says as he surveys the factory floor. "They want to bike or walk to work. So we need fewer parking spots and more bike racks."
