A small food truck park and community green space called Triton Yards recently opened on Sylvan Road in the Southwest Atlanta neighborhood of Capitol View. The park is run by Atlanta real estate investment firm Triton Holdings, which also builds and sells tiny houses from the half-acre site.
Located about five blocks west of the Westside Beltline trail, the park is open daily and typically includes two to three food trucks, like Che Butter Jonez, Meatballerz, Island Chef Cafe, and High Steaks Philly cheesesteaks. In addition to food trucks, the park also features two large projection screens and games such as Connect 4, Jenga, and cornhole. Triton Yards often plays Atlanta United soccer matches on its big screens.
Triton Holdings owns the lot on which the food truck park resides. Company CEO and Capitol View resident Trent White tells Eater Atlanta he hopes to eventually build a few container restaurants and a shipping container bar on the lot. White is currently seeking a liquor license for Triton Yards.
“I started the food truck park because we are residents of Capitol View and there is very limited food options and places to hang out outside of the Lee and White development,” White says. “We plan to continue to add to the space. Flower boxes, planters, etc. [and] expanding the ‘green’ theme.”
Presently, Triton Holdings is building four tiny houses in Capitol View, with an additional six homes in neighboring Westview and one in the Oakland City neighborhood. White began the tiny house division of Triton Holdings due to “demand”. He says the company typically sells about ten tiny houses a year.
White is also in the process of planning a tiny house convention at the food truck park to take place this summer.
