Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop and Kale Me Crazy Headline Gateway Additions

Sandy Springs "Gateway" project lands three new tenants

The new 21-acre mixed-use "Gateway" project in Sandy Springs has officially secured leases with three new tenants.  

Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop, a Knoxville, Tennessee-based business, has leased a 1,530-square-foot space. (Hopefully this new business is not confused with Atlanta's Buttermilk Kitchen, a breakfast eatery, also on Roswell Road near the project.) Buttermilk Sky Pie sells pies that are handmade daily from scratch.   Buttermilk currently operates two locations in Knoxville as well an an online business.  The Sandy Springs location will be the chain's first out-of-state franchise but will open around the same time as another Tennessee franchise location in Franklin, just outside of Nashville.  

Atlanta's "upscale organic juice and smoothie bar" Kale Me Crazy has signed a lease for a  850-square-foot space.  This will mark Kale Me Crazy’s fourth location in the Atlanta market. Existing Kale Me Crazy locations are open in Inman Park and Decatur with other locations coming to Brookhaven and midtown.  

BLAST ELEVATE YOUR WORKOUT, a HIIT boutique fitness concept, is opening their flagship studio in a 2,765-square-foot space. This is a relocation of their Buckhead studio, currently at 56 East Andrews Drive.

In addition to these newly announced tenants, a number of other new-to-market and growing restaurants and retailers are slated to open in the project.  

PNC Bank, pH Wine Merchant, Spa Sydell and Luxury Nails will all reportedly open in the new center.  The center will also be home to three Mexican concepts, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Cheeky Mexican Taqueria and a new eatery from the Verde Taqueria group.  

Asheville's Tupelo Honey Cafe,  Birmingham's Urban Cookhouse, and yet another location of Phoenix, Arizona-based  Sprouts Farmers Market round out the expected openings.  Sprouts is currently scheduled to open September 2nd. 

A relocated CVS Pharmacy has already opened in the project. (The CVS relocated from Powers Ferry Square, about a mile south, in North Buckhead.) 

Overall, the 121,071-square-foot mixed-use development project consists of 630 apartment units, a 20,000-square-foot office component, and 100,000 square feet of commercial/retail space.  Gateway is located at the intersection of Roswell Road and Windsor Parkway in Sandy Springs.  (Work to better align Windsor Parkway has begun and can be seen from Roswell Road.)  

What are your thoughts on this upcoming development?  Will you shop at Sprouts in lieu of Whole Foods or The Fresh Market?  What new eatery are you most excited about?

Looking forward to this development opening - and not just because it will mean construction stops behind my neighborhood. But can someone please explain why we need three more Mexican restaurants?
