Krog Street Market Opens Spring 2014

Krog Street Market

Krog Street Market is one of the latest examples of how the BeltLine continues to catalyze adaptive reuse of historic properties within it’s corridor. The 1920’s industrial warehouse at 99 Krog Street which once served as Tyler Perry’s studio reopens in Spring of 2014 as a west-coast style market and restaurants.

222 apartments are soon to follow on the Stoveworks property across the street and will have several hundred feet of Eastside Trail frontage.

In 1889 Atlanta Stoveworks introduced what was then a revolutionary cooking appliance:  the cast iron, wood-burning, pot-bellied stove. The fire “looped the loop” around the oven before going out the flue. With it’s flat top, the appliance did double duty as a room heater and cooking surface. The Stoveworks finally stopped production 100 years later, but soon after was repurposed as the mixed use development it is today. Appropriately, the property houses Rathbun’s, one of Atlanta’s most celebrated restaurants.

The KSM outcome will owe much to celebrity chefs Kevin Rathbun and Ford Fry. Paces Properties had plans to demolish the building and start over until Rathbun helped president David Cochran see the potential for adapting the complex. Fry made it clear that he wasn’t even interested in signing on as a tenant unless the original structures were repurposed. Cochran smelled what they were cooking and so Atlanta will soon enjoy an eclectic epicurean destination with the possibility of five sit down eateries and 20 – 24 market stalls.

Current tenant roster includes:

  • Ford Fry & Kevin Macey’s “Superica” Austin-style Mex-Tex restaurant

  • The Spotted Trotter – Full American butchery, charcuterie and cheese shop

  • Fred’s Meat & Bread – From the team behind Best New Restaurant The General Muir

  • Gu’s Dumplings – Chinese dumplings, noodles, and other authentic Szechuan fare

  • Little Tart Bakeshop – Fresh-baked pastries made from local, organic ingredients

  • An American Brasserie – Chef Eli Kirschstein’s regionalized and updated Bistro fare

  • Grand Champion BBQ – voted AJC’s best

  • Pannus Bakery – Homemade International breads and pastries

  • French Market Florist

  • The Collective – Home & Garden/Vintage/Local Art/Gifts

KSM is currently about 75% leased. More tenant announcements are expected as this section of the BeltLine loop continues to heat up.
