Visitors to the southeastern fringes of downtown Decatur may have noticed a recent injection of modern design where Church Street meets a biking path to Stone Mountain.

That’s where an independent production company called Cardón Pictures is staking its psychical presence in a boldly contemporary way. 

The topped-out building at 104-108 Church Street is located between Twain’s Brewpub and Billiards and the Agnes Scott College campus. The PATH Foundation’s Stone Mountain Trail is just to the south, and the revitalized Blair Building is a few doors in the other direction.

The studio production facility replaces a former residential structure—most recently home to Reagin Optometric Group—next to the Decatur School of Ballet.

According to Decatur City Commission meeting records, the Cardón Pictures facility will total 5,400 square feet, next to an 11-space parking lot. Uses will include studio, office, and retail space.

We’ve reached out to Cardón Pictures for more details and will update this story with any additional information that comes.

The project was designed by Decatur’s Office of Design architects, and Conyers-based Forgay-Passarella Construction is leading construction.
