The mixed-use development two miles east of downtown Atlanta has signed a Latin restaurant and a coffeehouse to leases. The restaurant, Babalu, and coffeehouse, Perk, will open June 1 in buildings overlooking Glenwood Park’s Brasfield Square, the community’s town center.
Perk will be run by the people who operate Joe’s East Atlanta Coffee Shop, while Babalu is owned by Atlanta restaurateur Hilton Joseph.
Glenwood Park is a 28-acre mixed-use project off Interstate 20 at Glenwood Avenue and Bill Kennedy Way. Construction began on the first single-family homes, townhouses and retail at Glenwood Park in 2004. When completed, Glenwood Park will have 325 to 360 residences, 20,000 square feet of office condominiums and 50,000 square feet of retail, as well as parks and green spaces. Green Street Properties is the primary developer.
