Vantage Realty Partners UNITES ART, ARCHITECTURE AND COMMUNITY WITH NEW Atlanta BeltLine Development
Kevin Gillespie dining concept and Shake Shack help anchor retail, restaurant and office space between Edgewood and DeKalb Avenues
ATLANTA (March 20, 2018) - Imagine enjoying the BeltLine scene while sipping a killer cocktail from the patio of Atlanta chef Kevin Gillespie’s newest venture, gathering with friends over at a wine bar and bottle shop led by sommelier Melissa Davis and then taking a stroll on the city’s ultra-intown amenity, the Eastside BeltLine Trail. With Vantage Realty Partner’s launch of a new multi-use project on the stretch between Edgewood and DeKalb Avenues, that dream will become reality.
Bordering the red-hot historic Atlanta neighborhoods Old Fourth Ward, Inman Park and Cabbagetown along Atlanta’s BeltLine, the 28,000-square-foot project set to open in spring 2019 will serve as the new home of:
· Cold Beer, the newest culinary creation from Atlanta chef/author Kevin Gillespie and his Red Beard Restaurants. Described as the sister to Gillespie’s much-celebrated Gunshow, Cold Beer will feature a beverage program from cocktail expert Mercedes O’Brien along with a menu of shareable dishes. With a patio on the roof and two patios adjacent to the BeltLine, Cold Beer’s communal seating, interactive service and edgy drinks and eats will create a gathering spot for neighbors and visitors.
· Hazel Jane’s Wine & Coffee, a wine bar concept by Revelator where natural and biodynamic wines take center stage. Hazel Jane’s wine and beverage program will operate under the direction of certified sommelier, Melissa Davis (Staplehouse, Cakes & Ale). The day-to-night location features a full-service kitchen, a coffee and espresso counter, a large central bar in the heart of the space, and a convenient BeltLine adjacent patio & bottle shop.
· Shake Shack, the critically acclaimed modern day roadside burger stand. Designed by Smith Hanes, the Shack will be constructed to reflect the Old Fourth Ward’s charm, using recycled and sustainable materials, booths made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and tabletops constructed from reclaimed bowling alley lanes. A reflection of Shake Shack’s commitment to community investment, the menu will feature exclusive items in collaboration with local purveyors and proceeds from certain menu items will benefit a local charity partner.
“With the BeltLine expansion, we’re witnessing one of the fastest evolving eras of growth in Atlanta’s history,” says Vantage Realty Partners co-founder Chris Carter. “As retail and office space evolve, we want to provide spaces that complement, serve and reflect the character of these unique neighborhoods. When I walk my three children past this development, I want to feel proud and know that what we have created is a direct reflection of who Vantage is.”
The cornerstone of Vantage Realty Partners is built on using elements of art, architecture and community to create gathering spots that connect people, resulting in lasting memories. This new project is the first to encompass both sides of the BeltLine, which means the retail, restaurant and loft office spaces will coexist with the BeltLine Trail and also offer abundant space for rotating art installations featuring the work of local artists.
Says Vantage Realty’s Gene Rice: “Our focus is on carefully balancing and respecting the history, culture and character of what has previously existed here while continuing the momentum the BeltLine brings to the community. The vision for this project is to join the Eastside and Memorial Drive sections of Atlanta’s BeltLine while providing exciting new spaces for a city that has quickly become one of the most in-demand places for people and businesses from around the world.”
Vantage Realty Partners still has available two retail spots consisting of 2,356 square feet and 1,693 square feet (or could be combined for a 4,049-square feet space), one 5,621-square foot restaurant space and a 2,600-square foot to 7,500-square foot loft office space.
