Upscale Bowling coming soon to Atlantic Station

Source: Hines

Atlantic Station has just landed a new bowling alley just as their multi-use development embarks on a major transformation.

Bowlero will occupy close to 36,000 sqft and will sit next to the Regal Theatre. It is taking the place of The Diner, Kinnucan’s, and the former Fox Sports Grill. Bowlero will have a digital gaming area, 30 lanes or bowling, and a full gastro-pub menu. There are currently four locations in Georgia: Marietta, Norcross, Kennesaw, and Columbus.

The upscale bowling alley is expected to open in mid-2019.

“As the evolution of Atlantic Station continues, Bowlero is the perfect complement to our retail, restaurant and entertainment offerings,” said Nick Garzia, director of retail leasing for Hines, the owner of Atlantic Station.

As announced, Atlantic Station is undergoing big architectural styles and scale changes. The remaking of the center will also include more green space for public use/ events and revamped retail and dining options.

New Public Park set to Launch Construction IN West Midtown

West Midtown is gearing up for an insertion of green space.

Construction began this month for a four and a half acre public park at the corner of Northside Drive and 17th Street, between Howell Mill Road and Atlantic Station.

The park will offer mulch trails, benches, and skyline views described as “dramatic,” according to officials with the Upper Westside Improvement District, a Community Improvement District (CID). The clean-up phase is expected to be completed by the end of September when the park would be opened to the public. Other phases will take several more months.

“We’re thrilled to be underway creating a safe and beautiful space along one of the highest profile corridors on the Westside,” said Elizabeth Hollister, UWID executive director, in a press release. An online survey of the planned park yielded over 650 responses suggesting that patrons would favor simple open space and walking/jogging paths over an outdoor gym.
