A future town center in Johns Creek is convincing well-known Atlanta restaurants to enter the suburbs for the first time.
Toro. Development Co. has announced the first batch of restaurants and retailers planned at Medley, which is rising on top of a former office park in one of the most affluent and diverse communities in the state. The redevelopment will add 900 residential units, 110,000 square feet of offices and 200,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space.
One of those tenants will be Little Rey, a Piedmont Heights staple created by chef and restauranteur Ford Fry. The restaurant, known for its chicken al carbon, serves a menu inspired by North Mexican cuisine. The new location at Medley will be the first expansion of the concept outside of Intown Atlanta.
“Little Rey is a place for the neighborhood," said Fry in a news release. "It’s about enjoying wood-grilled flavors, delicious margaritas and our holy grail pancakes, plus it’s all centered around families, so the Johns Creek community is a great fit."
Here are the other tenants that have signed onto the project so far:
Toro Development Co. expects to break ground on the project later this year and wrap up the first phase in fall 2025. Demolition crews are now removing an office building currently on the 42-acre site, located at McGinnis Ferry Road and Johns Creek Parkway. The firm is actively seeking an Indian restaurant, fitness concept, steakhouse and dress boutique for the project, said Kimberly Goetz, vice president of leasing, in a news release.
"Brand alignment is important to us, and we are intentionally seeking tenants who share our values and know how to deliver exceptional guest experiences," said Mark Toro, who founded the namesake firm and played a crucial role in creating Avalon in Alpharetta, in a statement.
The team for Medley includes Franklin Street Senior Director Len Erickson and Senior Associate Kaitlyn Theriot for retail leasing; Stream Managing Director Bryan Heller for office leasing; architect Nelson Worldwide; engineering firm Kimley-Horn; and landscape architect Site Solutions.
