A developer has proposed to create a food hall where the Alpharetta location of The Varsity once operated, which closed in February after 12 years of business.
Developer George Banks discussed plans for a property with five restaurants at the Design Review Board meeting on Dec. 16.
“The whole idea for this prototype was to take what we learned at Krog Street and kind of distill it down into a new construction model,” Banks said at the meeting.
Banks said four of the spots have already been leased but did not announce any names. He mentioned one would be a “breakfast/lunch place” that would close at 2 p.m.
The space that has not been leased is intended to sell ice cream — similar to Krog Street Market, which has an outpost of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams.
Pittsburgh-based architecture firm Strada LLC is designing the project.
The conceptual site plan was approved with the condition that Banks is to return and present specific samples, colors and choice of final site plan at a Jan. 20 meeting.
