The transformation of old warehouses and industrial yards in West Midtown is progressing on Brady Avenue south of 10th Street.
Stockyards, as the development is known, encompasses a three-acre wedge of land between Brady Avenue, the railroad tracks running into downtown, and 10th Street.
Some tenants already lined up include the Painted Duck (an upscale bowling alley) and Donetto (a new restaurant concept by The Indigo Road). According to a banner in front of the project, only 4,000 square feet of retail space—of the total 40,000 square feet—remain available.
Much of the office space has also been spoken for, with Atlanta-based Fitzgerald & CO and Momentum Worldwide—two brand agencies—plus global communications and engagement firm Weber Shandwick claiming 43,000 square feet.
Development in the area has taken off in the last decade, with Westside Provisions pioneering the way for subsequent projects.
The former Star Metals industrial area is set to become an office tower, while across the street a curvy apartment building is planned. Also, the Atlanta Humane Society is looking to offload their campus at 10th Street and Howell Mill Road, while just north of there, Georgia Tech is hoping to bring a sizable mixed-used development to the neighborhood.
Last year it was announced that a hotel is planned adjacent to the Stockyards project, though a timeline for that is still unclear.
While Stockyards was gunning for an opening in “early 2017,” it’s looking more like late 2017 or even early 2018 is more realistic.
