Regional grocer Publix is in talks to anchor the second phase of The Interlock in West Midtown, reps for Developer S.J. Collins Enterprises told What Now Atlanta Monday. Newly-minted marketing materials for the multi-phased project indicate a deal between Publix and S.J. Collins is concrete, but the rep said the materials were mistakingly uploaded “by a lower-level employee” and that discussions are still underway with several grocers for the 42,517 square-foot space. Publix is leading the charge and a deal could be announced in the next few weeks, they said.
Called “The Interlock II,” plans for the project’s second phase have surfaced even ahead of its first phase making its debut; although The Interlock I is expected to open this spring. Phase II is expected to deliver in summer 2023.
In addition to a grocery store, The Interlock II will offer 130,000 square feet of office space, “ideal for both traditional and tech savvy occupants wanting a desirable and efficient work space,” 37,174 square feet of restaurant and retail space, a 670-bed Georgia Tech student housing development, and a 190-room boutique hotel.
The new uses will join 200,000 square feet of office space, 90,000 square feet of commerical space, 50,000 square feet of “incubator space” with Georgia Technology Venture, a hotel, an open-container policy that will be perfect for the center’s planned Holiday Bar, and more.
[Editor’s note: this article was updated Monday to clarify that a lease for Publix in The Interlock II has not been finalized contrary to newly-minted and official marketing materials for the development.]
