The Peachtree Center complex from John Portman will have a retail core, plenty of restaurants and many other offerings. It’s being dubbed as The Hub and it’s expected to open in the spring of 2019. This project is a part of the transformation of the once very recognizable transit hives of Atlanta.
Recently, developers of the project announced five new restaurants that will become a part of The Hub’s Gallery Level. This level will be located under the modernized courtyard and the five new restaurants will join Chick-fil-A, Yami Yami, Panbury’s and Aviva By Kameel.
The restaurants will be a part of a new food court, which will be connected to the outdoor courtyard and Peachtree Street. The goal of the center and the revitalization is to cater to the growing downtown population. In addition, 6,000 office tenants and 4,000 hotel rooms are connected to the Peachtree Center.
The owners of the property, Banyan Street Capital, expect 12 million annual visitors to The Hub.
The Newly Announced Restaurants
The Hub will see work on the new restaurants begin later this year and a rolling schedule will be used through early 2018. The restaurants coming to the Peachtree Center include:
Taste of India
An authentic Indian restaurant offering both north and south Indian cuisine, Taste of India comes from Siva Gandikota. The goal of this restaurant is to provide a rich experience with plenty of flavors of the Indian culture.
BEP means kitchen in Vietnamese and this restaurant will be the first location in Georgia for the restaurant. BEP! offers fresh Vietnamese cuisine with a fast casual type of atmosphere. Dishes can easily be customizes and include all kinds of options, such as Banh Mi, Pho, Bun Bo Hue, Banh Xeo and much more.
Southern Candy Company
The Southern Candy Company has been very popular in the retail pop-up concept at The Hub. It will take over a permanent location after spending 20 years in downtown Atlanta. This is the place to get your sweet treats with offerings, such as chocolate-covered pretzels, caramel turtles, pralines and fudge.
A restaurant from the Southern Proper Hospitality team, Beni’s Cubano will open at The Hub. This is the same company behind Tin Lizzy’s Cantina. Beni’s Cubano will offer Cuban dishes with plenty of classic plates, sandwiches and other offerings. They will serve dishes, such as mojo grilled chicken, yucca fries, maduros, empanadas and more.
The place to build-your-own salad, Salata is a chain restaurant and this will be the third Atlanta location. This fast casual option will offer plenty of options when it comes to creating the salad of your choice.
Other Projects from Banyan Street Capital
Along with these five new restaurants coming to the Peachtree Center’s Hub, Banyan Street Capital is working on plans for an apartment tower. It will be found atop a downtown parking garage located on Peachtree Center Avenue.
In addition, the company is also working on revamping a building in Buckhead found near Lenox Square. Plenty of projects are going on to revitalize areas of the city.
