Four new tenants announced for Lee + White food hall in West End

Crepes, coffee and Mexican food will join the lineup

Four new tenants have been announced as part of the forthcoming food hall in the Lee + White mixed-use development in West End.

UK-based Costa Coffee will open in a 1,647-square-foot space in the food hall at the entrance facing White Street. The full-service café will offer coffee and coffee drinks, baked goods from its on-site bakery and breakfast and lunch options. Founded in London in 1971, Costa has nearly 4,000 stores globally. The chain chose Atlanta for the launch of its U.S. expansion, with its first location opening in August at the CODA mixed-use development at Tech Square and a second Atlanta location at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School earlier this month.

California-based, family-owned bakery Sweet Red Peach is set to open its first East Coast location at Lee + White. Menu items include peach cobbler, sweet potato pie, cupcakes, banana pudding and other sweets like German chocolate, carrot, red velvet and coconut-pineapple cakes.

The team behind Crème de la Crepe at Marietta Square Market is opening a second location of the concept at Lee + White. Crème de la Crepe will feature breakfast, savory and dessert crepes, with options including Philly cheese steak, pizza, veggie and French Riviera with cinnamon apples, walnuts and caramel.

Slated to open in early 2023, the food hall will feature 19 vendors, including a central bar, and will offer BeltLine frontage and direct connectivity to the project’s Central Lawn, a public gathering and event space. Additional tenants lined up to date include Gekko Hibachi & Sushi, Honeysuckle Gelato, Lake & Oak BBQ, Mochinut, The Original Hot Dog Factory and Pastaholics.

Acquired by MDH Partners and Ackerman & Co. in September 2019, the 442,562-square foot adaptive reuse Lee + White development is a popular destination for breweries, restaurants and retailers. In addition to the food hall, the latest phase of redevelopment continues the transformation of Lee + White into a business hub as the owners refurbish more than 120,000 square feet of warehouse space into creative offices. A major addition to the office lineup at Lee + White is nanotechnology innovator Carbice, which has established a 23,367-square-foot headquarters and production facility in Building 1050.

Ackerman & Co. and MDH Partners are also integrating a container village at the property providing an affordable opportunity for startups and small businesses seeking brick-and-mortar space to sell their products. Five businesses are scheduled to open their retail spaces in the brightly painted shipping containers this November.
