Fitzgerald & CO, Momentum Worldwide, Weber Shandwick, Mannington Mills Inc., and a new The Indigo Road restaurant, to join The Painted Duck in the West Midtown adaptive renovation project.

Stockyards Atlanta, a joint-venture adaptive renovation project of three historic warehouses in West Midtown between Federal Capital Partners (FCP) and Westbridge Partners, has begun construction, the development Monday announced in a press release.

Stockyards Atlanta has reached agreements with several new tenants, bringing the project to more than 65 percent pre-leased, and is expected to open in the first quarter of 2017.

Tenants joining The Painted Duck, which was previously announced, are Fitzgerald & CO, Momentum Worldwide, Weber Shandwick (all three owned by Interpublic Group), Mannington Mills Inc., and a new restaurant concept from Charleston, S.C.-based The Indigo Road.

“The overwhelming interest and activity at Stockyards is reflective of a national trend where businesses appreciate the vibrancy and authenticity of highly amenitized, infill, adaptive reuse projects that live differently from traditional business districts,” Chris Faussemagne of Westbridge Partners, said in the release.

“There are not many opportunities like this left, and we are thrilled to be underway.”

Fitzgerald & CO, an Atlanta-based creative agency of 33 years, Momentum Worldwide, a “total brand experience agency focused on sports, events, and shopper marketing,” and Weber Shandwick, a global communications and engagement firm, will move into Stockyards Atlanta with over 200 people sharing more than 43,000 square feet.

Mannington Commercial, a manufacturer of premium flooring, will open a Customer Engagement Center and showroom at Stockyards.

The Indigo Road hospitality group, with restaurants like The Cocktail Club, Indaco, The Macintosh, Oak Steakhouse and O-Ku, will open a yet-to-be-named concept at the adaptive reuse project.

Stockyards Atlanta will occupy three acres on the corner of 10th Street and Brady Avenue in West Midtown. The tract is one of the last remaining pieces of Atlanta’s historic industrial core. Located on the rail lines, the area served as the central clearinghouse for livestock through the 1800s and into the 1900s and includes two historic meat-packing buildings constructed in the early 1900s.

Designed by architectural firm ai3, Stockyards will total 95,000 square feet of “creative class A office space.” The street level will include an additional 13,000 square feet of restaurant space with 25,000 square feet located on the lower level. The project will include 400 parking spaces within a parking structure to support easy access from multiple entry points. Gay Construction is the General Contractor.

Cushman and Wakefield is handling the office leasing. SunTrust Bank, represented by Mark Hancock, Senior Vice President, Commercial Real Estate, is the senior lender.

  1. nice place in the day time but area goes to crap real fast at night with Club Compound. Customers will have to dodge flying celebratory gunfire at night. No thanks!
    Someone made a deal proposing a great location without scouting it first. Lets call it Murder Stockyards

    1. That’s an odd statement, Milton. That area is incredibly tame, and the decision to place this development there makes tons of geographic and financial sense. It’s literally across the street from the acclaimed Miller-Union. There is a fair amount of foot traffic, it’s decently lit up at night, while Compound can get rowdy, the comments about gunfire seem out of place.

          1. Wow, Milton. That’s quite a comment. You often base statements like that on so little info? I daresay New Year’s Eve is not a fair representation of our neighborhood. I’ve lived around the corner for 10 years, have 2 kids, and while Compound may cause some evening traffic and some outfit ogling, it’s presence has never been an issue.

            1. Is this person serious basing an opinion about an area on New years Eve?That is a cool area and I see it becoming the hottest part of the city.This development will bring life and iis a great readaptive use of a historical part of the city long forgotten
