Expect a cafe and coffee roastery in the new loft office redevelopment.
UPDATE (January 27, 2017): East Pole Coffee Files Plans For Armour Yards
East Pole Coffee Co., an "Atlanta-focused" coffee roaster, has secured a lease for Armour Yards, Third & Urban, the developer behind the new loft office redevelopment, Tuesday announced in a press release.
East Pole co-foudners Matt Chesla, Jared Karr, and Jules Tompkins, will move into a 1,713-square-foot space, which will double as a café and coffee roastery. The space will prominently feature the company’s roasting production, similar to an open-kitchen restaurant concept.
"We have a high value for transparency, which has come through in the way we sell our coffee. We provide as much information as possible on the coffees we roast and sell. I think this value will bleed over into our plans with our new location at Armour Yards,” Tompkins said in the release.
“The idea is to center the whole experience of the café on our roasting production, which will be visible to patrons. We'll be able to showcase everything that we do and a big part of that is operating a full-scale, top-notch café experience in a part of town that would welcome a local specialty coffee brand."
Amour Yards is positioned between Buckhead and Midtown, along Ottley Drive and Armour Drive off of the intersection of Monroe Drive and Armour Drive, a total of seven buildings that will house over 275,000 square feet of loft office space, collaborative meeting areas, restaurants, fitness and outdoor gathering spaces.
The campus is currently home to SweetWater Brewing Company, American Spirit Works, Atlanta Track Club, Georgia Organics and Fox Bros BBQ commissary kitchen.
Adrienne Crawford, vice president, and Lily H. Heimburger, vice president, with SRS Real Estate Partners represent the landlord, Third & Urban. The tenant, East Pole, did not have representation in this transaction.
