Developer Third & Urban has completed Common Ground, a redevelopment of the former Western Electric Building located on the Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside Trail. Already home to New Realm Brewing and retail/restaurant concept Bazati, there is still 33,000 square feet of available space for lease.

“We are looking forward to completing this project and providing office and retail tenants as well as guests more than one acre of outdoor patio space along the Eastside Trail,” said Hank Farmer, partner at Third & Urban. “The power lines along the entire property are being buried in order to maximize the scenic view of the Atlanta skyline from both the rooftops of Bazati and New Realm Brewing.”

The redevelopment breathes new life into the former warehouse with a contemporary design, plenty of natural light and office tenants will have the option to build out their own rooftop decks as well.

New Realm Brewing, which opened in January, has an expansive space where its creating craft beers (including IPA and Pilsner selections in cans), not to mention a buzzing restaurant under the direction of Executive Chef Julio Delgado.

Bazati offers novelties, books, flowers, Colombian leather, artisanal Yucatecan accessories and home wear, wine and cigars in its retail concept, but also two restaurant concepts. The Brasserie is a nod to 1920’s Paris café life, while Estrella, located on the roof, features an open-air bar and a long list of bubbly and classic Latin cocktails to evoke 1950’s Havana and Miami.

Tenants interested in leasing retail and office space should contact Scott DeMyer at Colliers International at (404) 781-0217.

Common Ground is located at 550 Somerset Terrace NE. For more information on the current tenants, visit and
