With phase one of West Midtown’s mixed-use The Interlock nearly fully leased, several new tenants have signed on to join phase two of the project, located adjacent to the current property at the intersection of Ethel and Northside Drive. The second phase of the project is currently under construction.
Recently signed new leases for phase two include Starbucks, Kura Revolving Sushi Bar, Salon Lofts, and Five Guys, Developer SJC Ventures Wednesday announced. Phase two will be anchored by a 42,000-square-foot Publix grocery store, 670 rooms for Georgia Tech student housing, 275,000 square feet of commercial space and limited restaurant opportunities.
“We have an incredible opportunity remaining for a 4,500-square-foot restaurant with an outdoor patio that would be a fantastic addition to our current lineup, and we look forward to announcing several other additional new leases over the next few weeks,” Justin Latone, senior vice president of leasing for SJC Ventures, said in the release.
The Interlock, a $750 million mixed-use project with entertainment, living and dining options, office space and outdoor connections, amenities and parks, welcomed its first tenant openings for phase one in April 2021 with Bellyard hotel and Puttshack. On Howell Mill Road and Beeline Boulevard, the mixed-use, office, and entertainment complex has a mix of fine dining, fast casual restaurants, retail shopping and entertainment spaces, all capped off by Rooftop L.O.A.
“From its inception, we wanted The Interlock to be a product of community input,” Jeff Garrison, principal at SJC Ventures, said. “The community wanted a hotel, grocery store, entertainment, dining and office space. We are extremely pleased that The Interlock has become such a huge amenity for West Midtown and has changed the energy here, creating a vibrant and interactive space. These new tenants at phase two will continue that trend.”
Construction on phase two of The Interlock started in May 2021, with a projected opening of 2024. The second phase plans to offer the same walkability and connection as the first, and both phases will connect via a one-acre public park.
