As Midtown’s high-tech and much-hyped Coda preps for a topping-out celebration in September, exactly what the project will serve up at street level is coming more clearly into focus.
Beyond Coda’s 645,000 square feet of office space and sizable high-performance computing center, the John Portman and Associates-designed tower on Spring Street will deliver a chef-driven food hall called The Collective at Coda, the latest dining option for Tech Square.
When it comes to Coda eats—at least the initial ones—expect local offshoots.
Coda officials announced this week The Collective has signed on Hector Santiago (of El Super Pan) to operate El Burro Pollo Burrito Kitchen; meanwhile, Ken Yu and Seven Chan will run Poke Burri (its sister location opened in 2016 in East Atlanta Village under the same name); and Buckhead fast-casual spot Wildleaf, from cofounders chef Randy Lewis and David Morse, will open a second location at Coda, as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
About two-thirds the size of Krog Street Market, Coda’s culinary component will join a similarly sized food hall, Main & Main, farther north in Midtown at the revamped Colony Square, and another multifaceted food concept, Caravaca Market, operating on Peachtree Street at the base of Trace Midtown apartments.
The full Coda project is on schedule to open in the spring of 2019.
Meanwhile, have a look at these (relatively) new renderings depicting what Coda is shaping up to be, from the street retail up to bocce on the roof:
