Kroger Bringing Big New Store to Northside, Howell Mill Expansion in Doubt
Tone To Atlanta | November 29, 2016

Ardent Commercial Realty and Fuqua Development plan to begin pre-construction work soon on their joint venture at Northside Drive & 17th Street near IKEA. The new development, close to but not part of Atlantic Station, will be anchored by an approximately 82,000 square foot Kroger grocery store. The Kroger will be similar in size and offerings to the recently opened Kroger at Lindbergh Place, another Fuqua project, near the corner of Piedmont Road and Morosgo Drive. Among the "premium" amenities expected to be included in the new Kroger are a Starbucks, beer/wine bar, "ClickList" grocery ordering, The Little Clinic and assorted prepared and customizable meal options.

Avid readers of ToNeTo Atlanta will recall that earlier this summer I revealed Kroger's plans to expand their existing store at Howell Mill Square on Howell Mill Road. With the Howell Mill store less than two miles from the planned store at Northside & 17th, sources indicate that Kroger may have indefinitely tabled their expansion plans for the older store.

I contacted Glynn Jenkins, Public Relations Director for Kroger's Atlanta Division, about the company's Northside and Howell Mill plans. In response to my inquiry as to the status of each project and whether both are still in the works, Jenkins responded by indicating "There is currently no timeline for the expansion of this project."

The Daily Meal | October 18, 2016

Beer, barbecue and baseball are staples of summer in the south. Terrapin Beer Company and the Atlanta Braves plan to deliver them all through a brand-new taproom and microbrewery at The Battery Atlanta, adjacent to SunTrust Park, the soon-to-be new home of the Braves.

The Terrapin Taproom will be a restaurant operated by Delaware North, offering a rotating tap list that includes many of the signature beers that have elevated and defined Terrapin within the craft beer world since 2002. Fans of the Athens-based brewer can expect to enjoy classic Terrapin brews such as Hopsecutioner, HI-5, RecreationAle and Rye Pale Ale. The Taproom will also feature the world-famous Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q. Named the best barbecue in Atlanta by a host of publications, Fox Bros. will bring its special blend of Texas heat and southern spice to The Terrapin Taproom.

Alpharetta's growth just tip of the iceberg
Alpharetta Herald | October 12, 2016

Alpharetta continues to blaze the trail for business growth and development wins in the North Atlanta area.

Just in the last three months, it has seen mega-million-dollar purchases of Sanctuary Park ($265 million), EndoChoice ($210 million), and Avalon ($500 million). With an improving economy and a shrinking supply of Class A office space, there may be much more to come.

Alpharetta's vacancy rate for Class A office space is a little more than 8 percent, which is both a blessing and a curse. While certainly preferable to the alternative, it also makes it harder to compete with other cities looking to attract the corporate campuses that Alpharetta has for years.

However, help is on the way. Near Windward Parkway a new project dubbed "Edison" will add over 200,000 square feet of office space in the form of corporate campuses, aimed at attracting a millennial workforce. Two buildings will house conference space, gyms and cafeterias in addition to outdoor recreations space.

Atlanta Business Chronicle | September 21, 2016

The massive live-work-play development that will surround SunTrust Park in Cobb County is starting to take shape.

Check out the progress in the slideshow below.

The development of Battery Atlanta promises to bring numerous benefits to Cumberland-Galleria and the rest of Cobb County as it creates a year-round destination to accompany other attractions in the county. It opens in 2017 with the ballpark.

The restaurant/retail component of Battery Atlanta, being done by Brave's development partner Fuqua Development, leads off with a roster of restaurants that include Antico Pizza, Cru Food and Wine Bar, Tomahawk Taproom (featuring Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q), a Superica "Mex-Tex" concept by chef Ford Fry, and a steakhouse concept with chef Linton Hopkins. An additional 350,000 square feet-worth of retail is also on tap, according to Schiller.

Large Mixed-Use 'Tech' Projects in Works for Alpharetta
North Fulton Herald | September 21, 2016

You may not be aware, but competition for millennial-based tech companies is heating up. And two major developments in Alpharetta could likely help the "Technology City of the South" maintain its luster heading into the next decade.

The TPA Group, a private real estate investment, acquisitions and development firm headquartered in Atlanta, is involved in both projects, which will provide significant relief in an office market that is about full.

TPA is working with Fuqua Development LLC on a 62-acre, mixed-use project at the southwestern corner of Ga. 400 and Haynes Bridge Road. This is a relatively massive development that would include 430 apartments, 70 townhomes, 78,800 square feet of retail, 36,800 square feet of restaurants, 500,500 square feet of office space and 17 acres of greenspace. Initial renderings show 10-story office buildings and 5-story buildings with street-level retail with lofts, apartments and offices above.

Atlanta Journal Constitution | September 21, 2016

Atlanta Braves on Wednesday announced a partnership agreement with sports equipment giant Mizuno, which will include a showroom "experience center" at the adjoining Battery Atlanta entertainment district.

Mizuno, which has its U.S. headquarters in metro Atlanta, will be the team's official "baseball gear partner," and the brand will have prominent advertising within the new SunTrust Park, and offer a unique program to loan baseball gloves to fans to catch foul balls, the partners said in a news release.

The Braves said the Mizuno will have multiple baseball glove kiosks throughout SunTrust Park where fans can check out gloves and return them at no charge or purchase them after games.
