Is Shake Shack coming to Atlanta? First, the rumors pointed to two Ponce City Market locations (one in the rooftop amusement park!), and now, a new rendering of forthcoming district Buckhead Atlanta very clearly reveals a Shake Shack sign— or at least, the tail end of one. Does that mean the burger joint is for sure going to be in the Peachtree Road development when it opens in spring 2014? Maybe.
Says Curbed Atlanta, "We're not so blind as to think pristine renderings translate exactly to reality, but ... [developer] OliverMcMillan's CEO [said] retailers more commonly found on Rodeo Drive, Michigan Avenue and Madison Avenue have leased 60 percent of Buckhead Atlanta retail space." And yes, there is in fact a Shake Shack on Madison Avenue. Have inside information? Do send it over through the tipline.
