West Midtown (aka Westside) has grown from a neighborhood dominated by industry to an edgy-cool mixed-use mecca over the last few years.
The latest project to carry on the trend, Stockyards, broke ground earlier this summer. Developers Federal Capital Partners and Westbridge created a joint-venture to transform three former warehouses into an office-anchored mixed-use center, featuring 95,000 square feet of offices and almost 40,000 square feet of restaurants and retail.
When the project launched, the only confirmed tenant was The Painted Duck, a high-end bowling alley and game bar not unlike The Painted Pin in Buckhead. Now, a press release by the firms notes that four new tenants have signed on, bringing occupancy to more than 65 percent already.
On the food front, Stockyards will include a new concept by The Indigo Road, a Charleston hospitality group behind The Cocktail Club, Indaco, The Macintosh, Oak Steakhouse, and O-Ku.
Other new additions to the roster include Atlanta-based Fitzgerald & CO and Momentum Worldwide — two brand agencies — and global communications and engagement firm Weber Shandwick. The three offices will fill more than 43,000 square feet of the available office space with 200 employees.
Additionally, Mannington Commercial will open a Customer Engagement Center and showroom to feature their premium flooring products.
With tenants lined up and work underway, expect to see the first phase of the project delivered in early 2017.
