Orangetheory Fitness, Sweet Hut Bakery & Café and Newk’s Eatery opening soon in Midtown.

Jamestown Properties, the developer behind Midtown’s Metropolis, in a press release announced three new tenants will open in Shops at Metropolis (SAM) at the end of 2013, beginning of 2014.

The retail portion of the Metropolis condos, now 100 percent leased, will be home to Orangetheory Fitness, Sweet Hut Bakery & Café and Newk’s Eatery, according to the release.

“Each of the new tenants at Shops at Metropolis brings a fresh, exciting concept to the Midtown Mile,” Kevin Green, president of Midtown Alliance, said in the release.

“Combining popular fitness, authentic dining and quality services, we are pleased to welcome the colorful collection of new faces to the neighborhood.”

Orangetheory Fitness, set to open in winter 2013, offers personal training workouts that are broken into intervals of cardiovascular and strength training, the release notes.

Sweet Hut Bakery and Café will offer Asian inspired delicacies, snacks and beverages. Also located on Buford Highway, the boutique bakery’s second location will offer guests a variety of Taiwanese bubble teas, buns and pastries, such as the signature almond taro tarts and coconut crunch cookies. Sweet Hut Bakery & Café will open early 2014.

Previously announced as joining SAM, new neighbor Newk’s Eatery is a fast casual concept by the founders of McAlister’s Deli. The Midtown location, next to La Tagliatella, will offer tossed salads, personal pizzas and toasted sandwiches, along with a selection of homemade desserts and coffee.
