Hosea + 2nd, the East Lake development that is home to The Greater Good Barbecue, Poor Hendrix, Mix’d Up Burgers, and, soon, Mary Hoopa’s House of Fried Chicken and Oysters, has revealed new details for its Phase II expansion. No leases have been signed, but the development’s new addition will house two more dining options.
“We will be looking for two more neighborhood-oriented, locally owned establishments,” Nathan Bolster of ReDevStudio, a partner in Hosea + 2nd, tells Eater Atlanta. The new spaces will cover 4,000 square feet, according to the development’s leasing brochure, and construction is expected to be completed by spring 2018.
The developers behind Hose + 2nd first announced plans to bring new life to a sleepy intersection at Hosea L. Williams Drive and Second Avenue in May 2015. The Greater Good, from Fellini’s and La Fonda owners Clay Harper and Mike Nelson, was the first restaurant to open in August 2016. Poor Hendrix followed in November 2016, and Mix’d Up Burgers made its debut in May. Mary Hoopa’s, a new restaurant from chef Robert Phalen of Inman Park’s One Eared Stag, is scheduled to begin service this summer.
Last October, the Hosea + 2nd team announced intentions to expand the venture from a collection of a few restaurants to a full-blown mixed-use development. Phase II will install a two-story, 7,800-square-foot building at the northeast corner of the intersection, and it will include six “creative office lofts” to go with the restaurants.
“We’ve been ecstatic with the reception that the first phase has received, with the success of our tenants, and how the neighborhood has supported them,” Bolster said in a prepared statement. “We can’t wait to bring even more options to Hosea + 2nd with this next phase. This is the next step to the end goal of a neighborhood-oriented commercial node.”
