Tropical Smoothie will occupy the fifth and final retail space, a 2,196-square-foot portion of the 10,247-square-foot ground floor, joining the already-opened Taco Bell, Twisted Kitchen, Supercuts Hair Salon, and Insomnia Cookies.

The Scion Group purchased University House Midtown during a portfolio acquisition of 19 student housing communities in June 2016.

“Situated in Atlanta’s urban core in the booming Midtown area, the project represents one of the best purpose-built student housing properties in the United States and we were very excited to add this asset serving students at Georgia Tech to our portfolio,” Mitchell Smith, COO at The Scion Group, said in a press release.

“Given that the ground-level retail is a prominent feature of the building, it was imperative that we have the spaces fully leased…”

Atlanta could soon see several additional Tropical Smoothie locations.

In 2015, Tropical Smoothie signed franchise agreements to open 23 locations in the Atlanta market over the next five years.

Locations in Sandy Springs, Johns Creek, Kennesaw and Canton are “coming soon,” and seven stores in the greater metro Atlanta area are already open, according to the Tropical Smoothie website.

So is this the same concept that used to be in the Metropolis years ago that closed because it was awful? Wonder what they will do differently three blocks away.
