Five retailers have inked deals with Carter, the Atlanta-based developer overseeing the transformation of the areas wrapped around the ballpark formerly known as Turner Field. (It’s Georgia State Stadium now).
The next part of the business district’s overhaul could kick off at the beginning of next year, the publication reports.
Currently underway is the development of roughly 37,000 square feet of retail—part of 55,000 square feet slated for Phase I—along Georgia Avenue, which is looking different by the day with new development.
Carter has announced a handful of tenants that will fill its retail spaces on Georgia Avenue, such as Halfway Crooks Brewing and Blending, Wood’s Chapel BBQ, Little Tart Bakeshop, and Big Softie Ice Cream.
For Phase II, Carter is preparing to develop another 53,000 square feet of commercial space with loft offices above it, Bisnow reports.
The office space hasn’t been pre-leased, but Hodgepodge Coffeehouse will be situated in part of that new space.
Also on Georgia Avenue, Aspen Heights Partners is developing off-campus student housing, which could be packed with hundreds of students by the fall 2019 semester.
