Local restaurants sign on for new Westside development

Three established Atlanta restaurants and one new arrival will be part of an adaptive reuse development in west Midtown.

Westside Paper, set to open in 2022, is being developed by Third & Urban and FCP, and will reuse a more than 70-year-old industrial campus at 950 W. Marietta St.

All-day brunch spot Pancake Social, which opened its first location at Ponce City Market in 2019, is set to debut at Westside Paper in spring 2022, serving a variety of pancakes, egg dishes, sandwiches, bowls, juices, coffee and brunch cocktails.

Glide Pizza, which Atlanta native Rob Birdsong opened on the Eastside Beltline in 2020, will offer its New York-style pizza at the development.

Restaurateur Richard Tang’s Girl Diver, which opened at Madison Yards in Reynoldstown in 2020, will open a second location at Westside Paper. The restaurant serves a menu of Vietnamese-Cajun seafood dishes, and Tang also owns Char Korean Bar & Grill in Inman Park.

Finally, the development will be home to the first Atlanta location of fried chicken sandwich spot Boxcar Betty’s. The restaurant, which also offers fried pickles and sweet potato fries, has locations in Charleston, Chicago and Charlotte.

“Having great restaurants sets the tone for Westside Paper and the environment we are creating,” Third & Urban partner Chris Faussemagne in a news release. The developer also is behind several other Atlanta projects, including Common Ground on the Eastside Beltline and Armour Yards. Once complete, the 15-acre Westside Paper campus also will offer office space and retail.
