Fado Pubs, Inc. are considering taking their chain of Irish pubs to the west side of Atlanta.
The Atlanta-based chain has taken an interest in the new development called Elan Westside that is currently being built across from the White Provision building.
Located at Howell Mill Rd. and 14th St., the White Provision building was once the south’s first modern meat packing production plant in 1910. Now, the historic building and nearby construction is marketed as Atlanta’s gateway to the Westside as it is currently a mix-use neighborhood complete with retail stores, restaurants and condos.
“There is nothing finalized,” Chris Faussemagne, a principal of Westbridge Partners, the developer who will become the owner and operator of the retail side of Elan Westside told The Atlanta Business Chronicle.
“One of the folks we are talking to,” added Faussemagne, who said the deal with Fado is not done yet.
Elan Westside is said to include 197 luxury apartments and 11,000 square feet of retail space upon its completion in summer or fall of 2013.
Fado’s only current location is in the Buckhead area.
