The reimagining of Atlantic Station is set to include upscale bowling—again.
At a prominent corner that’s hosted Fox Sports Grill, The Diner, and Kinnucan’s over the years, Atlantic Station will welcome the city’s first Bowlero, described by the district’s owner, Hines, as an immersive entertainment destination and “the world leader in bowling.”
Bowlero will take a 36,000-square-foot space at the corner of 19th and Market streets, expected to open in mid-2019, Hines officials announced in a press release today.
The district hasn’t seen a bowling option since the Dolce Group shuttered Ten Pin Alley about seven years ago.
At Bowlero Atlantic Station, expect 30 lanes of bowling, a “state-of-the-art digital gaming area,” and a full gastro-pub menu, which will include oversized, shareable “Big Swig” cocktails, reps said.
“There is not a state-of-the-art venue like this in Midtown,” Nick Garzia, director of retail leasing for Hines, said in the release.
Across the street, another 25,000 square feet of shops and restaurants is planned at the base of the proposed AMLI residential building. Collectively, the intent is to create “a new core of activity on the northeast quadrant” of Atlantic Station, per the release.
At last check, the 10-story AMLI project was slated to begin construction this summer and debut 360 apartments by 2020. Hines officials have predicted it will command some of Atlanta’s highest rents.
Meanwhile, on the flip side of the mixed-use community, construction on the timber-framed, loft-style T3 office building is moving forward on 17th Street near Target, claiming a former parking lot.
All told, Atlantic Station’s “major repositioning,” as Hines officials call it, will include a rejiggered mix of tenants, overhaul of the Central Park area, and the addition of a planned 700,000 square feet of creative office space.
