Atlanta’s next warehouse rejuvenation project is a Westside venture fittingly called COMPLEX that hopes to capitalize on nearby momentum and open in just a few months.
Billed as a reclaimed warehouse space that’s “setting a new standard for adaptive, sustainable reuse in West Midtown,” COMPLEX stands where Chattahoochee Avenue meets Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard, just up the street from the Topgolf Atlanta entertainment compound that opened last year. And around the corner from where The Masquerade won’t be opening.
In a press release, developer Third & Urban announced Monday that more than half — 62,000 square feet — of COMPLEX has already been claimed as the project preps to break ground this month.
Half of that space (31,000 square feet) will be occupied by upscale catering company Proof of the Pudding, which inked a 10-year lease.
Officials hope to finish the $16-million redevelopment by May next year, with 20 different spaces — a mix of warehouse, office, and retail uses — carved from 105,000 total square feet.
Hank Farmer, a Third & Urban partner, said in the release: “This upscale mix of office and warehouse product will provide new economy businesses, who desire a more inspiring environment, the opportunity to utilize creative space that until now has only been targeted at office tenants in Atlanta.”
Tenants announced so far don’t include much for neighbors to get excited about, but maybe that’ll change. They’re described by the developer as follows:
- PSG Construction, a boutique general contracting company focused on commercial, design-driven projects, will lease 6,000 square feet of office and storage space for five years.
- LTX Solutions, a supply chain management solution firm, will lease 7,368 square feet of office space for five years.
- Investa Services, already located at COMPLEX, has extended its 17,000-square-foot office and storage space lease for an additional five years.
Third & Urban is helmed by former Jamestown executives who played roles in developing Ponce City Market and Westside Provisions District.
More recently, their Armour Yards project has helped enliven the industrial district around SweetWater Brewery.
