One Place ATL - You Do Have Time to Get Away

The Backstory

Award-winning and nationally recognized luxury music DJ Mark Battle , and his philanthropist sister, Sabrina Adams, have joined forces to continue their family legacy: One Place ATL  — a hybrid resort/staycation experience, all inspired by the love of family. 

The siblings were inspired to create a place evocative of their family reunions which have a 50+ year legacy. Together they are bringing their family values of loyalty, integrity, and togetherness to the project. Mark, a 20+ year Atlanta resident is a serial entrepreneur who has also owned a popular New York-style pizza parlor, Sonz Pizza, and feels confident in delivering another successful product in One Place ATL.  

Together, Mark and Sabrina are putting their imaginations to work, designing a space that invites you to take a break, take a seat, and enjoy an amenity-rich experience a stone's throw away from the city.


The Project

This hospitality/event space is located on 40 acres in Covington, Georgia. One Place ATL will be a villa-style retreat located less than one hour outside of Atlanta. 

Designed with intimate gatherings in mind, each of the (8-10) villas sleeps up to six people, and are equipped with their own kitchen, pool and grill. Guests bring their own food and drink in an effort to cultivate a family-style experience. 


One Place ATL features personal concierge services for its guests, who will also enjoy:

- Tranquil scenery of two ponds
- A beautiful riverwalk
- Horseback riding 
- ATV adventures
- Ziplining
- Hot tubs
- Private or Shared Swimming Pool
- Nature trails

The space is designed with environmentally friendly materials including freight container pools equipped at each villa, solar powered electricity, water sourced naturally from the river, and goats who trim the lawn.


The Costs

Our mission is to keep the costs associated with building as low as possible, while creating a unique space with environmentally friendly design.
Building will take place in the following phases: 

Phase I: Development - clearing out the land - currently underway
Phase II: Building infrastructure/solar panels/sewer systems/electric/water - starting August
Phase III: Construction - starting December/TBD
Phase IV: Soft Opening: marketing campaign, etc - starting April 
Phase V: Opening - targeting Memorial Day 2022


Why This Project Means So Much

The pandemic has touched all of our lives differently but awakened a universal desire to disconnect from stress, and reconnect with loved ones and the great outdoors.

One Place ATL provides a perfect solution: an opportunity for city-dwellers to quickly escape the sounds and stressors of the metro area without greatly sacrificing their routines and schedules.

On a personal level, spaces at One Place ATL will be named after pivotal figures in Mark and Sabrina’s lives who provided encouragement, including the naming of “River Ro” after his mother who passed away a decade ago. 


Your Impact

Thank you so much for your support in helping to bring One Place ATL to life. We appreciate your contributions and look forward to enjoying the space with you in the future. Any contribution you make will go straight into this project. We need $500,000 to complete the structure.
