UPDATE (June 19, 2017): Ecco Buckhead Could Cost $2.2 Million To Buildout
Fifth Group Restaurants is moving forward with plans to open a third location of its popular European concept, Ecco, in Buckhead.
Simon Property Group, the developer of Phipps Plaza, Monday filed a building permit application with City of Atlanta to lay the foundation for the forthcoming restaurant.
Ecco will be situated between the luxury Buckhead mall and the recently-opened AC By Marriott Hotel.
According to the filing, Ecco will be two-stories tall and an estimated $418,500 could be spent laying the 9,830-square-foot foundation.
Ecco Buckhead, designed by The Johnson Studio, is slated to open mid-2017, the brand’s third location. The original Ecco is in Midtown and the second at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Fifth Group also owns and operates Alma Cocina, La Tavola Trattoria, Lure, The Original El Taco, and catering company Bold American Events.
