*Update 5/16 The Urban Market is no more. My source has told me there will be something else taking its place. Ill let you know once I have more information.
My good friends over at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta told me something you might want to check out. Each Friday evening from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm they are going to be setting up an Urban Market in the Resident’s Lobby. What can you find there? Try local, seasonal and artisanal items including produce, homemade specialties, bakery items, beverages, flowers and more.
If you have dined at Park 75 before, you probably have heard chef Robert Gerstenecker has taken the upper terraces planters and turned them into a private garden. He has done some great things to bring Atlanta foodies their farm-to-table wishes. He produces his own honey, pickles, preserves and even grows herbs and produce on-site (lemon verbena, basil, sage, bay leaf, mint, oregano, vine-ripened tomatoes, rare peppers, edible flowers, lettuce, zucchini, radishes and much more). Check out this video where Chef Robert takes you on a tour of the rooftop garden.
Now you can take home some of those fresh items and share them with friends and family. Head over to the atlantaSKYrise Facebook page to see some photos from the Urban Market.
CB2 opened this past weekend at 1010 Midtown, so I went with a friend to check out the new store. CB2 is the first major retail shopping component to open its doors at the massive 12th & Midtown complex (located a few blocks from Piedmont Park). If you are thinking it’s more of the same items sold at Crate & Barrel, think again. CB2 is a younger, fresh and has a different attitude. I found quite a few things I’d like to buy! They has some great acrylic pieces, interesting mirrors, chic lighting and so much more. The people who works there are very friendly and go out of their way to help you.
I’m hoping 12th & Midtown will get some major players to open up shop in the building. I’d love to see Apple open a Midtown location on the corner! (You know they are going to open a store in Midtown at some point). Did you check out CB2? What did you think? Click Here for More Photos & the Rest of the Feature
Streets of Buckhead developer Ben Carter said Wednesday he is in talks with private investors to raise $200 million to resume work on the stalled luxury retail project. Carter told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he conferred last week with investors about how to get the massive development completed. Unable to get a traditional bank loan amid the credit crunch, Carter said he has been seeking private investment money instead — a position many developers are in.
