Radio station, developer, restaurateur team up for huge downtown sports bar
Atlanta Business Chronicle - February 16, 2007by Rachel Tobin RamosStaff writer

Byron E. Small
They’ve got game: Restaurateur Bob Amick, left, developer David Marvin and Steak Shapiro of radio station 790 The Zone plan a sports-themed restaurant at 300 Marietta Street that will include a broadcast studio and a huge deck.
Sports radio powerhouse 790 The Zone is joining with David Marvin's Legacy Property Group LLC and restaurateur Bob Amick -- of Trois fame -- to create a sports-themed eatery, tentatively called STATS.

The restaurant will open later this year one block from the aquarium, in what Marvin is calling "restaurant row."

The eatery will be Amick's first downtown outpost in two decades and 790 The Zone's first branded restaurant. For Marvin, it's the culmination of a long-held dream to build a destination downtown.

Plans for the 15,000-square-foot, casual restaurant include a broadcast studio and a huge deck that will attract aquarium visitors, Philips Arena fans and conventioneers.

"This will be a sports bar like no other sports bar in the city of Atlanta," said Amick. Architects ASD Inc. also designed Amick's Lobby and Piebar and will use the space's brick interior and wooden floors to make a comfortable restaurant. Steaks and burgers will be on the menu, and average ticket prices will be near $20. STATS will anchor 300 Marietta Street, a historic building that Marvin wants to fill with concepts from Asian to Mexican. He acquired the building from adidas AG (OTC: ADDDY).

Adidas invested millions in the space for its Olympic offices. The 1860s-era building is considered the first built by a freed slave in Atlanta, Marvin said.

Amick says he's excited to go back downtown, where his last restaurants opened in the 1980s, including City Grill, Dailey's and Mick's.

For Marvin, restaurant row is part of multi-block plan that also involves up to three more new hotels and 100,000 square feet of food and retail space. His dream started in 1993 when he bought a 5-acre parcel of land near the construction site of Centennial Olympic Park, for $33 per square foot.

Little did he know the area would become the epicenter of an unprecedented downtown revival.

Though his first hotel, a 321-room Embassy Suites, didn't open until 1999, Marvin today is sitting on one of downtown's most developable pieces of land, where land prices have risen to $100 per square foot.

And his plans are as big as the expectations that city leaders have for the area that now boasts the Georgia Aquarium, and soon, the new World of Coca-Cola.

Marvin is planning three more major hotels on his land, the first being a 242-room Hilton Garden Inn with 50,000 square feet of retail and 670-car garage, expected to open this year.

Next, he's planning a 30-story condo-hotel tower on the same block as the Embassy Suites, followed by a hotel or condo near the Hilton Garden Inn.

Marvin has secured a permit to have a heliport on top of the Hilton Garden Inn, and renderings show a glassy skybar atop the hotel that will overlook the park and the downtown skyline.

He's also planning to rebuild the Palms at 70 John Wesley Dobbs and Peachtree Center into a 220-room boutique hotel, that could open in 2008.

His total downtown investment rings up at $300 million, with another $300 million in planning.

Marvin also has signed the Peasant Bistro to fill a space at 250 Park, in his 98-unit luxury residential condominium, Centennial Park West.

The two-story, 150-seat bistro will overlook Centennial Olympic Park.

"I went down there and said, 'Oh my God, we need to be down here,' " owner Maureen Kalmanson said. "It's really turning into a major, big city, which is kind of fun."
For Marvin, his patience and slow-going ethic have finally yielded returns that seemed far off when he moved here with a sports marketing firm in 1993.

The Connecticut native, who earned an MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a master's of science in real estate from MIT, initially had a hard time getting local investment for his vision.

"In 1993, downtown was a very tough sale," he said. "People were sure it was an unsavory place and that it was never going to be viable. A lot of investment was driven very narrowly for the Olympics, and with the closing ceremonies, new investment downtown dried up."

His financing -- in addition to city programs like the Enterprise Zone and tax allocation district -- came from out-of-state lenders and capital from a Chinese investor, David Chu of the Mission Hills Group, who is still a partner today.

Fourteen years later, it appears Marvin is finally hitting his stride. His vision is to create a district that evokes Denver's LoDo district or Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco.

"Centennial Olympic Park has been a huge catalyst for the redevelopment of downtown," Amick said, adding Marvin's vision is working.

"He's committed, he's been patient and smart about making sure he does it and does it right He's not rushing to do things. He wants to do things that are going to be lasting. Ten years down the road he's going to look like a genius."

Three developers with local ties are planning to redevelop the area around Marta’s Five Points station. The redeveloped area will be called Railroad District, as a symbol of the first business corridor and hotel row in Atlanta’s history. The plans call for nearly 1,000 new lofts and an undetermined amount of new retail space. The total price tag for the project could reach $100 million. Here are a few of the details:

Emory Morsberger plans to convert an old bank headquarters building into 330 lofts that will probably sell for about $250,000 each.
Wood Partners plans 325 apartment units in the first phase of redeveloping the former Norfolk Southern headquarters.
Miller Gallman Developers plan residences and retail on the 12 acres it owns in the southern end of the district.

That was expected

I kinda expected that those proposals would show themselves from developers trying to bank on the FIve Points area. I am very glad that they are trying to rebuild the area !!! I was kinda worried about the outcome of what might happen to the area since Coca Cola moved out and the club scene has moved down there and we all know how Buckhead turned out in the 80's and 90's when it was a huge club scene !!!! But if they catch it before it goes to bad then I am all for further development !!! And not to mention Proporty Values of certain areas around the old Lakewood Fairgrounds if the Atl. Zoo moves over there !!!

Thank you guys so much for bringing this thread back to life.

Its just amazing how much is going on in atlanta right now!

Heres some great news:


Big insurer to join Midtown project

MetLife Inc. is joining Daniel Corp. and Selig Enterprises Inc. as a joint venture partner in the second phase of the $1.1 billion mixed-use 12th & Midtown.

The 12th & Midtown project, spanning three city blocks, will be the single largest contributor to the creation of a "Midtown Mile," high-end shopping district, comparable to Chicago's Magnificent Mile and New York City's Madison Avenue.


The 2.5-million-square project will include more than 1.2 million square feet of class A office space, more than 500 hotel rooms and more than 600 residences and about 150,000 square feet of retail space.

MetLife, already a big player in Midtown with its planned Metropolitan Center development, will invest through its MetLife Real Estate Investment arm, whose portfolio is valued at about $40 billion.

The insurance giant plans to break ground later this year on the $225 million Metropolitan Center, a mixed-use development designed to transform the northern edge of Midtown as it unfolds over the next several years.

Located on Spring Street at the end of the new 17th Street bridge across the Downtown Connector from Atlantic Station, the first phase of Metropolitan Center will include a 27-story office tower with 517,000 rentable square feet, to be named 77 East 17th St.; a roughly 30-floor luxury apartment tower with around 300 units; and 40,0000 square feet of retail space spread throughout both towers.

MetLife's involvement in 12th & Midtown is the product a 25-year relationship between Birmingham, Ala.-based Daniel Corp. and MetLife. During the past two decades, the companies have partnered on more than 18 real estate projects spanning more than 5 million square feet.

This project is going to be massive!!!!
