Brookleigh Market Bringing New Options to Brookhaven

Brookleigh Market nearly fully leased

Coro Realty Advisors' upcoming "Brookleigh Market" has landed a number of new tenants. The new mixed-use project is currently under construction on Johnson Ferry Road in Brookhaven.  In addition to previously announced tenants Pure Taqueria and Primrose School, a number of new leases have recently been executed.

The newly signed tenants will share the new building circled in red.  The lower center portion of the image is the upcoming Pure Taqueria, while the multi-level structure behind it is the completed Primrose school.  The upper left corner shows an undeveloped parcel that Coro has not yet confirmed its plans for.  

Glaze Doughnuts will occupy a 1,724 square foot space within the project and will sell fresh doughnuts as well as gourmet coffee and assorted other pastries and beverages. Sources say that the concept's owner has an extensive background at other businesses but that this is her first solo endeavor.  It's likely that Glaze will try to do for Brookhaven what Revolution and Sublime have done for Decatur and Home Park respectively.  

Burn Cycle Studio will occupy a 4,534 square foot space and will provide Brookhaven residents with their very own local version of Flywheel. New York-based Flywheel has area locations in Alpharetta, Buckhead and midtown, while local upstarts like Torq Cycle have opened on the westside.  

Brookhaven Family Dentistry will relocate from nearby Kroger-anchored Cambridge Square. Currently in a 900 square foot space, the new location will be 1,542 square feet.

Luxury Nails & Spa will occupy 3,404 square feet and is the latest location for local owners of a handful of salons in metro Atlanta.  

The owners of Cafe at Pharr plan to open a new concept dubbed "Brookhaven Provisions." The business is described as a blend of Cafe at Pharr and Star Provisions.  Brookhaven Provisions will occupy a 3,476 square foot space and may very well bring an end to the failure that was Baci and later Cafe at Pharr at nearby TOWN Brookhaven.  

A new salon called Balance Hair Salon will occupy 1,895 square feet.  

According to Robert Fransen, partner and chief investment officer at Coro, the plan is to "deliver the spaces to tenants by mid April."  With varying degrees complexity and permitting regarding the interior buildouts, some tenants may open as soon as mid July while others may take longer.

I live right next to this development. I'm excited about the doughnut place, but the other spots don't excite me.

Eli, what are your thoughts on this development as compared to TOWN (which I know you're not a fan of)?

How many nail salons can Atlanta support? Oh, wait... this is a "Luxury" nail salon.

Burn Cycle should do well of the Glaze customers.

Not to mention the dentist...

@Anon RE: TOWN Brookhaven v. Brookleigh. I think it's unfair to compare the two given Brookleigh is so much smaller with far less retail / restaurant space.

Thanks for your comments and readership!

I remember Brookleigh being designed with many senior housing units, is that still true?

Can we get a bagel spot in Brookhaven? I have to go to Einstein's in Sandy Springs or Goldbergs in Chamblee for my bagels. Would love to see Bagel Boys open a location down here.

Senior Housing: Brookleigh has two existing and fully leased properties operated by DeKalb Housing Authority. Hearthside Brookleigh at and Blair; and Ashford Parkside at Blair and Donaldson.

Regarding bagels, I agree, we need bagels in Brookleigh. I predict Glaze will consider offering bagels to widen their base beyond donuts.

Isn't this technically Chamblee?

Not Chamblee. It is within Incorporated Brookhaven.

I saw that The Mercantile closed at
Brookhaven Place. Brookhaven Place seems to lose stores quickly.

The primrose School looks hideous. Bad architecture. And what idiot allowed another school to go in on a corridor where there are already to many private schools Marist and Saint Martins). Where it seems every child is driven in a different car

I don't think the mix is all that bad. I'm especially excited about Pure. That place is going to kill it!

TB is a failure in design in execution. It's just awful. I still go there because there are a few stores I don't have a better option for but I cringe having to do so. Nothing but a bunch of cars constantly driving around. I'll be shocked if it ever hits 100% occupancy.

Agree on Primrose design, its a complete fail. Who uses red awnings anymore? Maybe its a corporate decision as I believe its a franchise.

Disagree on need for a school, tons of young families moving into the area to get into Montgomery so this place will be packed with pre-k kids going there (and their hot moms as well).
