Trader Joe's, Peachtree Forum
Date: March 24, 2016
Building 1200 at The Forum on Peachtree Parkway is a 90,000 square foot expansion to an existing 350,000 square foot mixed-use center with traditional mall type tenants clustered together in a pedestrian friendly, village like atmosphere. The addition consists of 30,000 square feet of street level retail and 30,000 square feet each of second and third floor office space. Located in Building 1200 is Trader Joe’s, a specialty grocery store that offers environmentally friendly products, gourmet and organic foods, domestic and imported wine and beer and several non-food items. WBA was responsible for designing the cold storage used for refrigerated items in this store. One thing that makes Trader Joe’s unique is the size of its stores—most locations average between 8,000 and 12,000 sq ft.
