The forthcoming Figo Pasta to feed students and techies in the Flatiron.
The Shumacher Group has leased space for a seventh Figo Pasta location in Downtown Atlanta. The casual Italian restaurant will occupy a unit in the south-facing end of the historic Flatiron building at 74 Peachtree Street Northwest, which is currently undergoing a $12 million renovation.
Harold Shumacher, President of the Shumacher Group, told What Now Atlanta (WNA) that the abundance of activity and increasing appeal of the downtown neighborhood was a motivation behind Figo Pasta’s expansion into Downtown Atlanta.
“Georgia State University has played a big role in transforming the area,” Shumacher told WNA on Tuesday. Because the area is also a vibrant business district, this location will have more of a “daytime component,” including coffee service.
The Flatiron is Atlanta’s oldest skyscraper and has recently become the home of the second Microsoft Innovation Center in the country.
Sandro Romagnoli, the owner of Figo Pasta, was not immediately available for comment.
