Planned ‘restaurant and retail’ project leases nearly 9,000-square-feet to veterinary clinic.

A new tenant filed plans with the City of Atlanta this week for an estimated $750,000 in renovations ahead of moving into 1071 Howell Mill Road, but it may not be the type of business you’d expect.

Blue Pearl Veterinary Clinic will open its third Atlanta location in 8,940-square-feet of the West Midtown development, which will also house JuicyGreen, a health driven restaurant concept from Erik Maier of Yeah! Burger, in 3,260-square-feet of the property.

The total available space at the location is only 13,000-square-feet, according to property developer Westbridge Partners‘ website, meaning there isn’t much, if any, room left.

Westbridge Partners acquired the property in 2012 through a partnership with The Meddin Company, which says on its website that 1071 Howell Mill Road will be, “a community of boutique retail, award-winning restaurants and upscale residences.”

“Based on their operating history in metro Atlanta and other states, we believe Blue Pearl will be an asset to the continued growth of the neighborhood,” Chris Faussemagne of Westbridge Partners told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in an email Tuesday when asked if the lease to Blue Pearl meant a change in direction for the project.

Faussemagne also said JuicyGreen, which had planned to open in spring 2015, is still under construction. Its social media accounts have not been updated since October 2014.

Calls seeking comment from The Meddin Company were not returned.
