Giant redevelopment project in the works on busy stretch of Beltline

An expansive redevelopment project is in the works on the Atlanta Beltline’s eastside trail.

The 85,000-square-foot redevelopment, from Third & Urban and Trillium Management, is located at 820 Ralph McGill Blvd. in the former Western Electric Building, according to a Thursday release. 

Developers are “actively marketing” 23,000 square feet of space for office, retail or entertainment uses.

The project is also slated to include two Beltline-facing hospitality concepts: A Latin-inspired brasserie “complemented by” merchants, and a 20,000-square-foot craft brewery.  

Construction on the project, which includes 600 linear feet of frontage on the Beltline across from the historic Fourth Ward Park, is planned to begin in February.

The restaurant Two Urban Licks will remain in its current location within the building, on which architecture firm ai3 is leading design.
