Sephora will join the tenant line-up at FCA Partners' The Exchange, one of the longest-standing retail centers in Atlanta’s premier shopping district of Buckhead. An extensive redevelopment that included new facades, unique materials and architectural upgrades, revitalized the 44,500-square foot center at Peachtree Rd. and Grandview Ave.
“Totally reinvented from its 60’s vintage self, The Exchange is now attracting new, eclectic and trendsetting names,” explains G. Win Kelly, principal and director of acquisitions of FCA Partners. “Like others, Sephora points to the center’s high visibility, ease of access, connectivity and ample parking as key reasons to open its second Buckhead location at The Exchange.” Sephora’s nearby Lenox Square Mall store will remain open.
Sephora, scheduled to open early summer, will occupy the 4,800-square foot corner unit along Peachtree Road adjacent to YEAH! Burger that will be under construction this spring. The beauty trailblazer joins SculptHouse, Storico Fresco Alimentari, Kohler, Kale Me Crazy, Posh Nails and Cherry Blow Dry Bar – all of which are now open. FCA is currently in negotiations with several additional tenants.
“FCA has been extremely selective with our leasing in order to assemble just the right, cohesive tenant mix that adds value not only to the community, but also to the shopping center,” adds Kelly.
Currently 56% leased, The Exchange has approximately 19,000 square feet available. According to Stephanie McCall of The Shopping Center Group, the exclusive leasing agent for the retail center, the remaining space is ideal for purveyors of fashion, accessories, home furnishings, boutiques and high-end jewelry.
