A West Midtown adaptive-reuse project that’s said to be claiming some of the last remaining pieces of Atlanta’s historic industrial core is 75 percent pre-leased and gunning for a Phase 1 opening this summer, officials announced this week.
New York based co-working company Industrious is the latest signee at Stockyards, a three-acre transformation of old warehouses and industrial yards on Brady Avenue, south of 10th Street.
The rail-connected district once served as Atlanta’s “central clearinghouse for livestock through the 1800s and into the 1900s,” and now it’ll cater to bowlers swilling craft beer and millennials who’d rather not work from home.
The 19,000-square-foot co-working space will be Atlanta’s fourth Industrious location, joining others in Ponce City Market, Midtown, and Buckhead.
Retail tenants at the 142,500-square-foot Stockyards include The Painted Duck (an upscale bowling alley and sister to Buckhead’s The Painted Pin) and Donetto (a new restaurant concept by The Indigo Road).
Both restaurants are expected to open this summer.
A joint venture by Westbridge Partners and FCP, Stockyards was designed by hip local firm ai3. Plans call for 400 parking spaces “within a parking structure to support easy access from multiple entry points,” per a press release this week.
Here’s a look at construction about a month ago:
And other illustrated views of what’s to come:
Following the success of pioneer Westside Provisions, development on this side of Atlanta has exploded in recent years.
Nearby, the 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. A timeline for that remains unclear.
