Hattie B’s Hot Chicken Expands to Atlanta

Exclusive representative Falcon Realty Advisors has advised Nashville-based concept on first Atlanta location in its expansion

Dallas, December 8, 2016 – Dallas-based Falcon Realty Advisors has advised Nashville-based Hattie B’s Hot Chicken on a 2,800-square foot lease for its first Atlanta location in the concept’s expansion. Expected to open late 2017, Hattie B’s will be located just south of Little Five Points at 299 Moreland Ave., which was originally occupied by a 1950s era iconic Phillips 66 gas station. Cal Marsh, Director of National Restaurant Accounts with Falcon’s Restaurant & Entertainment Group, and Ed lee of Capital Properties Group negotiated the deal with Knight Commercial Real Estate.

“Expanding to Atlanta was an easy decision as Hattie B’s has not only made waves among the communities it currently resides in, but among renowned industry food festivals across the nation – including the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival,” said Marsh. “Hattie B’s requires a space that will align with its fun, high-energy concept and as Hattie B’s exclusive representative in its expansion, Falcon will ensure each location reflects that unique quality.”

Selected as Hattie B’s exclusive representative for the company’s regional growth, Marsh advised on the Moreland Ave. location for its dynamic neighborhood and the ease of accessibility it provides due to the property’s 20 parking spots and the large public lot located next door. The new location will offer seating for 150 diners indoors and outdoors on a partially covered patio and an area for outdoor games such as cornhole.

“The minute we saw the building on Moreland, we knew it was the right spot for Hattie B’s. From the architecture and design, to the energy in the neighborhood, it just felt like the place for us in Atlanta,” said co-owner and co-operator Nick Bishop, Jr.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken is a family-owned business, owned and operated by father-and-son team, Nick Bishop, Sr. and Nick Bishop, Jr. The restaurant first opened in Midtown Nashville in August 2012 and currently has a total of two locations in Nashville and one in Birmingham, Ala. Hattie B’s is renowned nationally for its Nashville hot chicken served with increasing levels of heat (including “hot,” “damn hot” and “shut the cluck up!!!”) and was recently ranked sixth on the The Daily Meal’s list of America’s 75 Best Fried Chicken Spots.

Falcon’s Restaurant and Entertainment Group represents many flourishing emerging brands, such as Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Pink Taco, Publico Kitchen & Tap, Modern Market and Bulla Gastrobar. Other clients in Falcon’s impressive portfolio consist of top chain retailers, including Whole Foods, Junior’s Restaurant and Bakery, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, Twin Peaks and iPic Theaters.

Falcon Construction Advisors Completes Phase I and II of Promenade at Downey

Former NASA plant and movie studio in Southern California to become major shopping center and entertainment district

Dallas, November 7, 2016 – Dallas-based Falcon Construction Advisors has completed Phase I and II of Promenade at Downey, the high profile redevelopment project in Downey, California, being developed by Alberta Development Partners and Pacific Coast Capital Partners. The 656,000-square foot shopping center and entertainment district was previously the site of a movie studio and a NASA plant that produced and tested many of the 20th century’s greatest aviation, missile and space endeavors such as the Apollo Space Program and the Space Shuttle.

“The Promenade at Downey will pay tribute to its history throughout the property and will provide shoppers with a diverse selection of retail and entertainment tenants – from HomeGoods to Cinemark – that will truly transform this area into an entertainment district,” said David Hurst, President of Falcon Construction Advisors – a division of Falcon Realty Advisors, a national commercial real estate firm specializing exclusively in representation of retail, restaurant and entertainment tenants.

The Promenade at Downey’s entertainment court will offer educational reading stations with themed elements associated with the space program and an interpretive walk honoring space missions, while the Cinemark NextGen theater will feature panels commemorating Downey Studios, which produced movies such as “Iron Man,” “Spider Man” and “Catch Me If You Can” on the site.

“A cornerstone of Falcon’s business is creating a positive impact on the communities we serve, and the Promenade at Downey will not only broaden the area’s access to quality retail options, but is expected to generate more than $4.5 million of revenue to the city annually and create more than 5,000 new jobs once completed,” added Hurst.

With Phase I and II complete, nearly three dozen best-in-class retailers have officially opened their doors, including Walmart, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Ulta, Famous Footwear, Dress Barn, Carter’s, Oshkosh, Five Guys, Chipotle, Mod Pizza, California Fish Grill, Benihana, 24 Hour Fitness, Floor & Décor, Cinemark and Lazy Dog. Located southeast of downtown Los Angeles, the Promenade at Downey will also be home to a host of local, regional and national tenants such as Ruby’s Diner, Bar Louie, Skechers, AT&T and Gaucho Grill.

“At Falcon we consistently wear many hats – architects, general contractors, construction managers to developers – allowing us to provide a unique perspective for each of our projects and our role with the Promenade at Downey has been no exception,” said Tim Hughes, President of Falcon Realty Advisors.

Falcon Construction Advisors provides its clients with comprehensive services including construction management, program management, design services, concept development and interior finish outs for both local and national clients across the country. Falcon Construction Advisors provides more than 50 years of diverse, in-depth experience in both Real Estate Construction and Development.
