Bonefish Grill, LOFT and BurgerFi and Others Also Coming to Emory Point

The Cousins Properties folks sent out a press release this morning announcing some new additions to the Emory Point retail portfolio, including nationally well-known brands like Bonefish Grill and LOFT, which is owned by Ann Taylor.

Also coming to Emory Point is a gourmet burger joint called “Burgerfi“, which according to the release “resembles hamburger stands from the 1950s and 1960s, but with a twist – it only serves all-natural, grass-fed beef with no chemicals or additives.” and currently has 22 locations around the country, Paradise Biryani Pointe, which will offer “many variations of biryani – a popular, rice-based dish – and features Indian, Persian and Middle Eastern inspired dishes in a unique café atmosphere.”, and an “electic women’s boutique called “Francesca’s Collections”.

According to the release, 82% of Emory Point’s retail space is already filled and that many of the restaurants and shops will be opening starting in November.

And in case you need a retail recap up until this point (ha!), other retailers already announced include: fab’rik, Lizard Thicket, American Threads, The General Muir, La Tagliatella, Jazmin Spa, JoS. A. Bank Clothiers, Marlow’s Tavern, Tin Lizzy’s and CVS, among others.

  1. How does this development get built while the multiple planned residential/commercial developments in downtown Decatur (315, Trinity Triangle, et al) sit idle? Is this Emory Point site more attractive than downtown Decatur or does the developer (Cousins) have deeper pockets than those who own the Decatur properties? Obviously there are commercial tenants if this property is 82% leased so you can’t really blame economic malaise. Thoughts?

    1. Compared to Decatur, this commercial property does not have the same level of competition for restaurants and shopping. It also benefits from a captive, high-income base of consumers and residents from the CDC and Emory.

      I’m glad to see the density and quality of this mixed use development, but I fear the impact it will have on Clifton traffic.

      Hmmm.. If we could only get a MARTA spur line between Decatur and Lindbergh…

    2. The difference is that development serves the largest and most highly paid employment base in DeKalb County (Emory and CDC, and others) as well as being one of the most highly valued residential areas in the County. And yes, Mr. Cousins does have very deep pockets. It is a travesty that the tax payers of DeKalb County could not be convinced of the long term benefits to be had from the needed infrastructure investments. As for the auto traffic nightmare that may develop, wait until DOT begins the railroad bridge replacement project!

  2. Speaking as someone whose office is next door to this development, I can only say, WOO-HOO! Lunch options!
