Newk’s Eatery earlier this week was evicted from its Shops at Metropolis home, at 933 Peachtree St. NE Suite 921, according to an email obtained Tuesday by What Now Atlanta (WNA) that was shared with residents of the Midtown condominiums atop the retail. The quick-service eatery’s furniture and fixtures were placed curbside as part of the legal process.
“Dear residents, we received notice this morning that the retail landlord is in the process of evicting one of their retail tenants, Newk’s,” according to the memo. “For the next few hours, items from the restaurant must be moved to the sidewalk while the process is completed. Everything will be moved back into the restaurant before the end of the workday.”
The space housing Newk’s Eatery earlier this year was listed for lease. Josh Wulz, the Skyline Seven Real Estate leasing associate who holds the listing, told WNA, “We have multiple [Letters of Intent] trading at this time, one of which is very far down the road. We should have a replacement signed soon.”
Newk’s was planning to open back up originally while Wulz and his team searched for a replacement but were “unable to for a variety of reasons,” according to Wulz. “They’ve been cooperating with us throughout this unfortunate process.”
Newk’s has been a longtime tenant in Midtown having opened in the glassy condo tower in 2013. “The retail landlord apologizes for the inconvenience; however, they must complete the eviction process as required by law,” the email states.
