General Growth managing ATL kiosk program

Atlanta Business Chronicle

General Growth Properties Inc., which Atlanta hired in September, is now managing the city’s on-street vending program.

The first kiosks installed under the new program are now open in Woodruff Park along Peachtree Street. Vendors included in this initial group are selling everything from handbags and sunglasses, to newspapers and Atlanta souvenirs, in brand new steel-framed kiosk units with brass accents and domed canopies.

City officials are looking to the company to bring a uniform look to what is now a hodgepodge of vending stands, and to impose quality standards on the merchandise vendors sell. In an Atlanta Business Chronicle editorial in August, several major Atlanta hospitality officials voiced their support for the city’s vending program.

When the first phase of installation is complete, there will be 20 kiosk units in the downtown area, including locations near the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coke. The units are designed and installed by Stak Design, a Texas-based firm specializing in custom design and fabrication of retail merchandising units, specifically for the shopping center and trade show industries.

All of the kiosk units will include three advertising panels. The kiosk advertising will be managed by Cemusa, a global leader in the management of street furniture advertising in more than 160 cities around the world.
