Atlanta-based real estate investment and development firm Branch Properties today announces new tenant additions and expansions at Peachtree Battle Shopping Center in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. Gregg Irby Gallery will soon open at the center after moving from its West Midtown location, and regional retailer Onward Reserve will be relocating to a larger space within the development.

Peachtree Battle Shopping Center is a 168,000-square-foot, grocery-anchored center in the heart of Buckhead located directly off Peachtree Road. Along with a 32,836-square-foot Publix Super Markets, the development boasts over 50 additional tenants including nationally owned Baskin-Robbins, Ace Hardware and Walgreens and locally owned tenants including Sara Campbell and Holeman & Finch Bottle Shop.

“Peachtree Battle continues to serve as one of the most premier shopping centers in Buckhead, consistently drumming up new tenant interest and keeping the mix fresh and exciting for the surrounding community,” said Branch Partner Terry Hampel. “Gregg Irby Gallery is an exciting addition to the development, and we are pleased that Onward Reserve has also decided to extend its footprint after seeing such great success at the center recently.”  

Gregg Irby Gallery will be moving into a 2,600-square-foot space at Peachtree Battle, relocating from its current location in a converted warehouse in Atlanta’s Westside creative district. It will be taking over part of the former Carter’s unit at the development and is set to open to the public this summer. The gallery is rooted in the South and connects artists with collectors nationwide.

“We are excited to join the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center which has such a great, complementary  tenant mix,” said Gregg Irby, owner of Gregg Irby Gallery. “The location is ideal for so many of our clients and the design community, and it will be an easy and fun find for our out-of-town customers who visit the gallery.”

Onward Reserve will also relocate within the center this summer, expanding from a 794-square-foot space to a 5,900-square-foot location, occupying the remainder of the former Carter’s unit. This move comes on the heels of a successful warehouse sale hosted in the same space by the retailer earlier this year. The clothing brand is an authentic mix of laid-back Southern hospitality with a world class retail atmosphere and has locations across the southeast in Georgia, Texas, Tennessee and the Carolinas. 

"Our new space at Peachtree Battle shopping center will be our largest, most interactive store to date,” said Onward Reserve Founder and CEO TJ Callaway. “Consolidating our Buckhead locations into one larger store with ample parking will allow us to serve our customers better. We plan on making it our flagship store and will incorporate all aspects of the Onward Reserve brand and lifestyle. Personally, I spend a ton of my time at Peachtree Battle with my family, and I feel that a lot of our Atlanta customers do too."

Cava, a Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant chain, opened its doors at the center earlier this year in a 2,300-square-foot restaurant space at Peachtree Battle. Roshambo, a modern, upscale diner serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with full bar service, will open in a 3,998-square-foot space at the development this summer as well. The restaurant is owned and operated by Unuskay, the group behind other staples in Metro Atlanta including Local Three Kitchen & Bar, Muss & Turners and Eleanor’s.

In addition to Peachtree Battle, Branch is also overseeing the development of six other Publix-anchored shopping centers across the Southeast, including Perimeter Marketplace in Dunwoody, Ga.; Hugh Howell Marketplace in Tucker, Ga.; Merganser Commons at Dogwood Estates in Milton, Fla.; Wynnehaven Plaza in Navarre, Fla.; The Market at Hays Farm in Huntsville, Ala.; and Moncks Corner Marketplace in Moncks Corner, SC.
