In 2019, Prestwick Development Company pitched a 136-unit, four-story apartment project at 55 Milton Avenue in Atlanta’s Peoplestown neighborhood. According to Atlanta Beltline, the company closed on “The Milton” project in July 2020 and construction has been underway ever since.

Based on an application filed with the city this month, a new coffee shop is being planned for the project. Called Peoplestown Coffee, it will occupy a 1,758-square-foot space and has an estimated construction cost of $340,000 attached to it.

Atlanta-based companies Place Maker Design and Proficient Engineering are carrying out renovation work on the space.

What Now Atlanta has reached out for more details.

  1. Finally some coffee I can walk to in less than 15 mins. With all the construction in Peoplestowns/Summerhill/Grant park neighborhoods its been really frustrating to see a lack of commercial/retail spaces included in most of the new multi family buildings. Hopefully this pushes more development in the right direction increasing walkability.

    1. Developers need to see a business like a community coffee shop as an asset not a source of revenue. The price a lot of developers are wanting for Retail space is astronomical and scares away a small, community ingrained business.
