Atlanta Dairies this summer will welcome floral studio and boutique YOUNG BLOOD, the development’s first retail tenant, according to an announcement Friday.
“We’re so thrilled to be part of a project like Atlanta Dairies,” Co-Owners Rebecca Hanna and Ayla Gurganus said. “So much care has gone into preserving the historical details of the building while incorporating exciting community gathering spaces alongside a fun mix of local shops and restaurants. The size of the whole property feels very approachable and geared toward the neighborhood. We love the energy here.”
YOUNG BLOOD is slated to debut mid-June in a 1,400 square-foot retail space operating as a floral studio and design-driven shop with a focus on jewelry, home goods, apothecary, and accessories from local and international makers. It sits adjacent to Wonderkid.
“We’re thrilled to finally unveil our first retailer at Dairies with YOUNG BLOOD,” David Cochran, president and CEO of Paces Properties, said. “YOUNG BLOOD first opened for business just around the corner from Atlanta Dairies and has built a successful business that we found truly unique. We are excited that they saw Atlanta Dairies the same way and decided to relocate to almost exactly where it originally began.”
YOUNG BLOOD will also offer small-batch personal and home fragrance such as local perfume Marcie from Eidecker Studio, demi-fine and fine jewelry, ceramics including local ceramicist Utility Objects, small-batch foods like local coffee from Portrait, accessories including local maker Neva Opet’s leather goods, and more.
The upcoming YOUNG BLOOD is a relocation of the company’s Virginia-Highland storefront, at 632 N Highland Ave NE.
