Atlanta’s food hall craze continues with yet another project planned for Midtown. The Collective will open as part of the Coda mixed-use development in February 2019, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. It’s planned for 771 Spring Street NW in Tech Square.
The Collective will reportedly cover 20,000 square feet and include 10 dining options that feature various cuisines from around the globe. Healthy fare such as salads, grain bowls, and smoothies; street foods from the Middle East, Mexico, and Asia; pizza; and coffee may be among the selections, per the AJC. There will also be a centralized bar offering to-go beverages for consumption throughout the development.
After seeing the success of Krog Street Market in Inman Park and Ponce City Market in Old Fourth Ward, developers and restaurateurs have become infatuated with the modern, urban idea of a food court. Part of the redevelopment of Colony Square in Midtown will include a sprawling food hall. The team behind West Egg Cafe and The General Muir opened The Canteen, what is described as a “micro-food hall,” in Tech Square earlier this year.
The trend is reaching beyond Atlanta’s city limits and into the suburbs, too. In Alpharetta, a forthcoming food hall called The Daily has already landed a bar from the King of Pops team and Nashville-based Biscuit love as tenants. Out in Forsyth County, a project called Halcyon will include several high-profile stalls and full-service restaurants.
