The Krog Street Market and Ponce City Market concepts continue to expand to the suburbs with the announcement of a food hall planned for downtown Marietta. According to the Marietta Daily Journal, a developer has filed plans with the city to build an 18,000-square-foot food hall just off Marietta Square that is expected to feature multiple restaurants.
The food hall will be known as Marietta Square Market and will be built in a converted warehouse at 68 North Marietta Parkway, bordered by the William Root House Museum and Garden on one side and the Herb Shop on the other. Marietta Square Market is planned to have three large anchor restaurants and eight smaller kiosks for restaurants and shops, kiosks that will range between 400 and 800 square feet, the release states. There will also be a central restaurant and bar that will serve a variety of drinks, including an assortment of craft beer.
Concordia Properties is developing the project as part of a joint venture with Capital Properties Group and Synergy Realty Advisors.
Designed to mimic a turn-of-the-century railroad depot, the food hall will feature a 1922 streetcar identical to those that used to run from Marietta to Atlanta in the 1930s and 1940s at the front of the building. The fully-restored streetcar will contain a vendor, the release states. The building will also feature glass garage-style doors and a patio with hopes to open summer of 2018.
Recently, a food hall has been approved for Alpharetta by a developer from Krog Street Market. I see no signs of this popular trend ending in Alpharetta, Marietta and the rest of OTP. Our friends at the Marietta Food Tours are very excited and think the market is a great addition to the area, maybe even adding a third tour to their schedule.
Here’s a visual snapshot of the location from loop-net.com.
