More food tenants revealed for Forsyth's Halcyon project

Halcyon, a massive mixed-use project rising in Forsyth County, continues to land food tenants.

The latest announcement includes new locations of MidiCi Neapolitan Pizza, Cocina & Taqueria, Sweet Tuna, and Pita Mediterranean Street Food.

The project’s restaurant village is now 70 percent leased and its market hall is 100 leased, according to RocaPoint Partners, which is part of the development team.

Here’s more about each tenant:

• MidiCi will open its second Georgia location at the project, taking 4,000 square feet near the restaurant village and CMX Cinema. It specializes in creating fresh Neapolitan pizzas in wood-fired stoves imported from Italy. The restaurant features a live olive tree that gives the ambiance of an Italian courtyard. The first location of MidiCi is coming to Midtown’s 999 Peachtree building. The Halcyon franchise owner is Chris Duplessis.

• Cocina & Taqueria, a concept out of Sandy Springs, will open its second location at Halcyon. The restaurant and bar will take 6,000 square feet across from the CMX Cinema. It offers Mexican cuisine with menu items such as tacos, cauliflower rice bowls and flavored margaritas. The concept is from Rafael Jaime.

• Sweet Tuna will open its second Georgia location in Halcyon’s market hall. The poke concept allows people to build their own bowls. 

• Pita Mediterranean Street Food, which has multiple locations across Georgia, will also come to the market hall. It offers authentic Mediterranean food such as gyros and shawarma.

Two retailers were also announced for Halcyon: Totally Running & Walking and Uni K Wax.

Halcyon is now under construction and is expected to open in 2018.

The 135-acre project is from Atlanta-based RocaPoint Partners and New York-based The Georgetown Co. It will include more than 500,000 square feet of office and retail space, a movie theater, two hotels and 690 residential units.

JLL Retail is handling the retail leasing.

The project has landed other coveted food tenants, including new locations of Gu’s Dumplings and Alpharetta restaurant Butcher & Brew.

Cherry Street Brewing will also open a new brewpub and beer garden at the project.
