The filings arrive less than 24 hours after Kevin Rathbun, the chef and owner of Rathbun’s and Krog Bar, announced he would close the long-standing restaurants in preparation for the property owner redeveloping his tenant spaces of nearly 17 years.

Total construction is expected to cost $2,455,000, according to the filings.

That figure includes converting a portion of the building that houses Rathbun’s and Krog Bar, as well as a nearby loading dock/hall, into a breezeway with stairs that connects to the BeltLine, as well as “facade enhancements, storefront systems, and interior whitebox suites for future tenants.”

The plans also include landscape planting, pavers, wood-clad stairs/seating, and parking improvements.

“Asana Partners won’t be providing a statement,” a company spokesperson Tuesday told What Now Atlanta in an email.

The Stove Works, a former pot-belly stove and iron-pan factory opened in 1889, now operates as a mixed-use development of offices and restaurants.

It was most recently owned by Paces Properties, the developer of neighboring Krog Street Market.

What’s the ROI on breezeway?

Ngl, I can’t picture it.

That’s exactly what I was thinking!
But Rathbun’s is in an enormous space, so maybe they’ll add some retail along the side of the breezeway.

ROI on a breezeway could be huge as it enables them to activate a lot of Beltline adjacent square footage that is basically hiding in plain site at this point. I hate it because this redevelopment pushed me out of an office there, but that building is criminally underutilized given the transformation that’s happened around it over the past 5-6 years.

Anybody remember Virginia’s that was in the space prior to Rathbun’s?
They started out as a tiny cafe on Virginia Circle, then moved into that huge Rathbun’s space.
