Press Release

Modera by Mill Creek – Midtown welcomes popular New York food cart concept to retail landscape


ATLANTA (December 14, 2017) – Mill Creek Residential, a leading multifamily investor and operator specializing in premier apartment communities across the U.S., is pleased to announce the addition of The Halal Guys, the popular New York food cart turned brick-and-mortar restaurant, to Modera by Mill Creek – Midtown.

The 29-story community, the first high-rise building of Mill Creek’s Atlanta residences, houses 435 state-of-the-art apartment homes, including studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes in one of the city’s most lively and diverse neighborhoods. An energized, first-floor streetscape will be dedicated to 12,000 square feet of high-end retail and restaurant space that will make the locale more accessible and enjoyable for residents and guests.

“The addition of The Halal Guys to the retail landscape at Modera Midtown is a huge win for the community,” said Vice President of Development Harvey Wadsworth. “We’re excited to partner with the team there and are looking forward to seeing the concept further energize Midtown’s evolving culinary scene.”

The Halal Guys, the company’s second location in Atlanta, will consist of 1,486 square feet of street-level restaurant space and is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2018. The restaurant will offer a mix of various American Halal menu items, including gyro sandwiches, beef and chicken platters with rice, and the chain’s famed white and red sauces. The fast-casual restaurant will join Momonoki, a modern Japanese concept from the team behind Decatur’s Brush Izakaya, as Modera Midtown’s restaurant offerings.

“The Halal Guys brand traditionally has attracted people of all ages and backgrounds,” said Joe Hafez, The Halal Guys Atlanta director of operations. “Much like New York City, Midtown Atlanta is a vibrant, fast paced, diverse metropolitan community very rich in culture. We are looking forward to bringing The Halal Guys experience to Midtown Atlanta.”

Adrienne Crawford, vice president, and Lily H. Heimburger, vice president, with SRS Real Estate Partners represent the landlord, Mill Creek Residential Trust, in the lease agreement. Logan Elder, senior associate, with JLL, represented the tenant.
