With tenants in phase one of Avalon, a mixed-use project in Alpharetta, Ga., now open, North American Properties has revealed the first tenants for phase two’s 500,000 square feet of retail space.
The 86-acre development in Atlanta’s northern suburbs is 80 percent leased, according to NAP.
Lucky Brand, Levi’s and Urban Outfitters are committed to opening at Avalon’s phase two launch in 2017. The Boardroom Salon for Men, a Texas-based men’s hair salon, will open its first location in Georgia. Restaurants will include Rumi’s Kitchen, for Persian cuisine, Brine Fish House, a concept from restaurateur Marc Taft, and Hop City and The Spotted Trotter will unite to create a beer garden. Both concepts operate locations at Krog Street Market in midtown Atlanta.
Phase one retailers include Calypso, J. Crew, Anthropologie, Bonobos, Vineyard Vines, Tommy Bahama, Madewell, L’Occitane, J. McLaughlin, Kendra Scott, Johnny Was and Lou & Grey. Several phase-one retailers are scheduled to open soon, including Tesla, Aya Med Spa, Farm to Ladle and Cafe Intermezzo.
The entire project will have 75 retailers and 15 restaurants when completed.
“We carefully curated Avalon’s merchandise mix to resonate with our guests,” said Liz Gillespie, vice president of marketing at NAP, adding that retail for phase one of the project is 100 percent leased. Other components of Avalon include 106,000 square feet of office space, which is also fully leased, and multifamily homes.
Avalon’s phase two will include an Autograph Collection hotel.
Avalon is being built as a community where people live, play and work. Programmed events include comedy nights, music nights and Avalon Express, a trackless train that travels from Avalon Boulevard past The Plaza and back.
