As projects from south Grant Park to Inman Park and the Lindbergh area are proving, thoughtfully converted warehouse spaces are all the rage in Atlanta.

And there’s no sign of that activity stopping on the city’s western front.

The latest Westside “creative flex space” conversion was announced today for two 1964 warehouses along Menlo Drive, tucked off Huff Road in Blandtown, around the corner from AuthenTEAK furniture.

Totalling 80,000 square feet, the project will be called Inland Tract, according to developer Third & Urban, which is partnering with commercial real estate group Granite Properties.

Through a “strategic, longterm partnership,” the companies will also recapitalize a nearby Upper Westside project in a similar vein, Complex.

The developer has been active in recent years across the city, with a portfolio that includes Armour Yards near Lindbergh, the Beltline-adjacent Common Ground project, and a forthcoming “micro mixed-use” venture in Ormewood Park called Elway.

Granite owns and manages more than a million square feet of office buildings across northern metro Atlanta.

Third & Urban debuted Complex, which is 80 percent leased, at 1175 Chattahoochee Ave. in December 2016. Tenants include Proof of the Pudding, Bold Monk Brewing, Look Listen, and LTX Solutions. It’s on track to be fully leased by June, officials said.
