The small but highly engaged food truck park Triton Yards on Sylvan Road in the Capitol View neighborhood has filed an application for a Special Use Permit (SUP) to begin expanding their operation. The park opened in Spring of 2020 and has been host to a rotating cast of 2 to 3 food trucks and community events over the past year and a half. As reported by Atlanta Eater at the time, the park has planned to expand their offerings to include more permanent restaurants and a bar on the site.
With this SUP filing, its apparent that Triton Holdings, the owners and operators of Triton Yards, are making good on that plan. The newly expanded park aims to become more of an “outdoor food hall” with seven permanent container restaurants by the end of 2021, according a post on the Triton Yards Facebook page.
The SUP application was scheduled for review by Neighborhood Planning Unit – X, yesterday, September 13th. A hearing date before the Zoning Review Board for final approval has not yet been determined.
The park is part of Triton Holding’s mission of improving food access in the neighborhood, which is currently mostly single-family homes and industrial facilities in varying states of disrepair. On the Triton Yards Instagram page, the park acknowledges that “we know that Capitol View is pretty much a food desert… [which is why] we are exited to lease out these containers and provide you all with consistent food options every week!”
Triton Holdings is primarily a real-estate development and investment firm which specializes in flipping single family homes in “top tier or up and coming neighborhoods,” according to their website. The firm also operates a custom tiny house development arm, which they demo on the lot of Triton Yards.
Triton Yards is open daily, with food truck offerings and hours posted on their social media for each day.
