Halcyon names first tenant

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — The first tenant has been named for Halcyon, the mixed-use development off Exit 12 on Ga. 400.

Real estate group RocaPoint Partners, which co-owns Halcyon, announced Oct. 31 that CMX, a state-of-the-art cinema venue, will anchor the development. The theater will have 10 screens, 500 seats, 38,000 square feet and is slated to open April 2018.

This marks CMX’s first metro Atlanta location and its third in the country after Chicago and Miami. The group is choosing its locations at “select high-end retail venues across the country.”

“Our Atlanta theater positions CMX in one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S.,” said Jaime Rionda, CMX’s CEO. “The CMX experience sets a new standard in premium movie-going, and we look forward to being a part of the exciting Halcyon village.”

Additionally the theater will offer full-service gourmet in-seat dining, an assortment of wines and handcrafted cocktails. Oversized recliners, swivel tables, service push buttons and storage compartments are also offered at each seat.

This will be Forsyth County’s only dine-in movie theater. The design is intended to “seamlessly weave” into Halcyon’s walkable community.

“CMX perfectly weaves into the magnetic tenant mix we are looking to bring to Halcyon,” said Patrick Leonard, principal of RocaPoint Partners. “This particular chain gives us the entertainment venue we wanted: The plush viewing rooms offer moviegoers the cozy feeling of watching a film with friends, the luxury of having a full wait staff and gourmet dining options.”

Halcyon is set to include more than 480,000 square feet of office and retail, two hotels and 690 residential units once completed.
