A new project along the Atlanta Beltline’s Westside Trail has attracted another beer lover’s destination.
Lee + White will be a hub where the public can tour a multi-tenant manufacturing facility and taste products. It includes 23 acres of brick warehouses along a half-mile segment of the Westside Trail, which opened last September. Other tenants include local food brands such as Honeysuckle Gelato and Doux South Pickles.
“We are creating a one-stop shop,” said Hop City owner Kraig Torres, adding Lee + White will be a vibrant community that echoes places like downtown Asheville where several breweries and restaurants are clustered.
Hop City will take 6,000 square feet at the project, combining a restaurant, bar and bottle shop. It will be a two-story space along a courtyard across from Monday Night Brewing.
The hope is to open no later than October, said Torres. Hop City is working with architects Kronberg Wall and Square Feet Studio.
“We believe West End is the next Inman Park,” Torres said. “We love being on the Beltline at Krog Street Market. We think the same opportunities exist here.”
