Carter Monday announces three new leases for The MET, its 1.1 million-square-foot adaptive reuse warehouse district in Atlanta’s Southside.
Land of a Thousand Hills will open a coffee shop, event space, and “Atlanta’s largest on-premise roastery and a bakery” at the project previously known as The Metropolitan.
Leather goods brand KMM & CO. and accessory and apparel brand In God We Must have signed new leases for retail and creative workspaces, in the development, at 675 Metropolitan Pkwy SW.
“The MET serves as a creative catalyst in Southside Atlanta that is giving artists, digital creators, and entrepreneurs a chance to grow and collaborate,” David Nelson, Carter Executive VP, said in the announcement.
“As we continue to bring in a variety of tenants to The MET, we have the ability to transform the area into one of the most vibrant entrepreneurial communities and open a door for a magnitude of impact that extends throughout Atlanta and beyond.”
Currently occupying 1,000 square feet of space in Ponce City Market’s Citizen Supply, In God We Must is expanding its physical footprint with a lease for 1,070 square feet of space at The MET.
The apparel, jewelry, leather goods, and candle brand’s new space will offer production and retail capabilities, allowing much of the merchandise to be made, sold and shipped from The MET.
KMM & CO. will move its current workspace at Ponce City Market to The MET.
The new space will fully support the production and manufacturing of leather goods, including wallets, totes and other accessories, along with a retail component.
KMM & CO. will occupy 1,220 square feet at The MET and plans to be open by February 2019.
The MET is home to more than 140 tenants and is currently leasing spaces ranging from 1,000 to 100,000+ square feet and can support a variety of businesses, from startups and nonprofits to established companies in search of new headquarters.
The MET is currently undergoing property improvements, including increased accessibility to the site with a reinstated entrance from Murphy Avenue, as well as renovated creative office spaces with creative floorplans to offer a dynamic experience and communal spaces, including a courtyard and spaces available for community gatherings and events.
