Atlanta Business Chronicle | Local coffee company bringing HQ to big southwest Atlanta redevelopment (Video)
The redevelopment of a more than 1 million-square foot former cotton warehouse in southwest Atlanta has landed its first new tenant.
Roswell, Ga.-born Land of A Thousand Hills Coffee will take 20,000 square feet, combining four spaces that will open out to a courtyard in the center of the project.
“With such a dense concentration of creative thinkers within The Met, there is a need for a common meeting place where tenants can come together to curate ideas, connect with one another and connect with the community,” said David Nelson, executive vice president at Carter.
It’s a unique concept that will include a coffee shop, event space, a bakery called Crafted, and an on-premise roastery.
Land of A Thousand Hills will also launch a new social entrepreneurship program called “Do Good Labs” to help people “brainstorm, collaborate and seek coaching on how to transfer their skills and ideas to serve micro-entrepreneurs, such as helping create sustainable neighborhood gardens and creating health clinics,” according to an announcement.
Carter is working with architect ASD|SKY on The Met, which is home to more than 150 tenants and covers 40 acres just south of Interstate 20. Plans call for the renovation of up to 400,000 square feet in the first phase. Carter also plans to create a 1-mile spur-trail for people to walk from The Met to the Atlanta Beltline’s Westside Trail.
