Plans this week were filed to build the late-night bakery in Midtown.
Insomnia Cookies is moving forward with plans to open its first Atlanta bakery in University House (UH), a 17-story, 267-unit student tower with 10,200 square feet of street-level retail. UH is under construction at the corner of 8th and Spring Streets and is expected to open this summer.
A building permit application was filed with City of Atlanta Monday for Insomnia Cookies’ “interior fit-out,” at 930 Spring Street, in a 1,000-square-foot street-level space at the high-rise near the Georgia Institute of Technology.
The late-night bakery serves up cookies, brownies, cookie cakes and cold milk as late as 3 a.m. Some locations serve and deliver ice cream.
The Midtown Insomnia will be the bakery’s second Georgia location. The first is located in Athens serving The University of Georgia.
Founded in a college dorm room in 2003 at the University of Pennsylvania, by then student, Seth Berkowitz, Insomnia Cookies today has more than seventy locations nationwide.
