UPDATE (January 14, 2019): 30-Vendor Food Hall Chattahoochee Food Works Planned for Upper Westside
“The Works,” an under-construction 80-acre adaptive reuse project on the Upper Westside, has landed two new anchor tenants, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle (ABC).
Scofflaw Brewing Co. and a food hall called Chattahoochee Food Works will join the Selig Enterprises project.
Both companies will open alongside Ballard Designs, a home decor store that debuted its flagship at the development in summer 2018.
Scofflaw will open a 9,000-square-foot brewery and taproom in the development.
The new space, slated to open January 2020 at the latest, will double as a facility for R&D to fuel the company’s growth.
Scofflaw’s original location is about a mile away in the Bolton neighborhood of Atlanta.
“We will maintain our identity and package sales at our 1738 MacArthur location,” Matthew Shirah, the CEO of Scofflaw, Friday told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in an email.
“We have been through three of four expansions and that facility is really becoming a showpiece. The Scofflaw annex at The Works will serve as an R&D facility, eventually with a tap room surrounded by a park and food hall, for the company as a whole.”
Robert Montwaid, the co-founder of New York’s Gansevoort Market, is behind the project’s forthcoming food hall Chattahoochee Food Works.
But it won’t be like Atlanta’s other food halls, Montwaid told the ABC.
Chattahoochee Food Works will be an “incubator for young talented chefs” that feels “comfortable” and “homey.”
It’s unclear when the development will welcome its new tenants.
Selig Friday did not immediately respond to WNA’s request for comment.
