Ashley Plans to Furnish Alpharetta With a New Center

Ashley Furniture HomeStore, which opened their Alpharetta location this past summer, plans to add a small strip center to the outparcel of its property.  New plans ToNeTo Atlanta recently obtained indicate that the retailer plans to construct a single nearly 10,000 square foot building that will include  three tenants: two restaurants and one "retail."  The center, "Ashley Pointe," will be located near the intersection of North Point Parkway and Haynes Bridge Road, near North Point Mall.

The plans show that at least one tenant is quick serve restaurant la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe.  The cafe will occupy the largest space, a nearly 5,000 square foot suite closest to the furniture store, that will also have a patio.  The Dallas, Texas-based eatery currently has four locations in metro Atlanta and a pair of locations at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.  The chain's most recent location in Buford replaced a former TGI Friday's near Mall of Georgia, and opened last March.  

The middle space will be about 2,400 square feet and will be occupied by a "retail" tenant which could mean anything from a nail salon to a cellular store.  

The other restaurant space, measuring 2,500 square feet, will also have a patio and is likely to be another quick serve eatery.  ToNeTo Atlanta correctly deduced the restaurant interested in the space, but as the lease has not been finalized, and out of respect to both parties, ToNeTo Atlanta will not be naming the restaurant until the ink is dry.  

Are you excited to see la Madeleine open another location in metro Atlanta?  What is your favorite "bakery cafe" concept? What "retail" tenant would you like to see open in the new center?

Please share your thoughts below.

Listen - I love your site - read it frequently. I have to say, the following may be the single most arrogant and least informative line in anything that resembles reportage: ToNeTo Atlanta correctly deduced the restaurant interested in the space, but as the lease has not been finalized, and out of respect to both parties, ToNeTo Atlanta will not be naming the restaurant until the ink is dry.

I didn't know Le Madeleine was still a thing.

@Anon RE: "arrogant and least informative"

I appreciate your readership and your feedback and am genuinely sorry that you were so disappointed in this recent post. As I said, I have identified the tenant but as the lease has not been signed, I will not be releasing the name. I hope you can understand that in commercial real estate things happen and I didn't want to endanger the deal but also didn't want you and my other readers to think I was clueless as to who else was opening. This is Tomorrow's News Today after all.

Thank you again for your readership and comments.

Anon @ 10:53 - where to you get "arrogant" in that line? Sounds like he was being respectful to both parties.

And I'm not a paid or unpaid shill commenter for the author... besides, I've seen WAY more arrogant things from him and this doesn't even qualify as a topic for conversation in the least bit.
