An adaptive reuse project in Adair Park has landed a gluten-free bakery and a vinyl record store.
Hell Yeah Gluten Free and Wax Galaxy will come to 920 Murphy Avenue. The project is transforming the circa-1948 property into a roughly 40,000-square-foot development with office and retail space. It sits near the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail and the Lee + White project.
King Properties, which is developing and leasing 920 Murphy Avenue, confirmed the tenants in an email to What Now Atlanta.
“So far, we have Hell Yeah Gluten Free, which will operate a commissary, and will also have a space offering their gluten-free baked goods along with an expanded coffee program,” said Dee Dee Weekley with King Properties. “Wax Galaxy is a vinyl record store, which will be opening its first brick-and-mortar. We also have space available for a few more retail tenants that would find value in a creative community with close proximity to the BeltLine.”
Weekley added they are still looking for one to two additional restaurant concepts that “will serve the neighborhood and be a go-to for all tenants and visitors of the project.”
Alejandra Luaces-Riera, owner of Hell Yeah Gluten Free, told What Now Atlanta that the Adair Park location will be around 3,500 square feet. She looks to open around September to November of 2023.
Hell Yeah Gluten Free will also open another location at 308 W Ponce de Leon Avenue in Decatur, she said. That location will be about 800 square feet and could open in February or March of next year.
The bakery currently has a location at 900 Dekalb Avenue NE in Inman Park. It serves donuts, biscuits, scones, pies and cookies.
“High demand has always been an issue for us; one we’ve tried our best to navigate with grace and a cheerful and innovative spirit,” Luaces-Riera said. “Unfortunately, we outgrew our Inman Park space a year ago. Lines are one of the things we’re known for but can be difficult for people to commit to, so allowing more local access has been a big goal of ours. National shipping is another project we hope to take on.”
