The new fast casual restaurant is taking space in the forthcoming ‘675 N. Highland’ project.

The scheduled grand opening comes with the oh-so-typical caveat of permit approvals and weather, Jenson-Pitts said.

Plans for Rize Artisan Pizza were first filed with City of Atlanta in May, and the fast casual pizzeria earlier this year constructed a production facility in West Midtown.

The 3,500-square-foot restaurant and 1,200-square-foot outdoor patio are currently under construction, at 675 North Highland Avenue Northeast, a soon-to-open apartment project aptly named 675 N. Highland.

The “chef-driven concept” will join Trashy Diva, a woman’s retailer that offers retro-inspired wears, at the development. Trashy will have two storefronts at the project, a 1,600-square-foot dress, clothing and shoes boutique and 1,500-square-foot lingerie boutique, which will include both basic staple pieces and more extravagant or niche items.

Rize Artisan Pizza should open a second location in Sandy Springs, at 6050 Roswell Road in the forthcoming Square One Apartments, then up to 10 in the next year with “fast expansion after that,” according to a job posting for the pizzeria.
