Terminus Announces New Restaurants

Cousins Properties has announced two new restaurants for Terminus 200, the under-construction 25-story, 565,000 square-foot office building in Buckhead.

Two Texas-based restaurants, III Forks and Cantina Laredo, have signed leases for locations at Terminus 200 when it opens in 2009. Both restaurants will be new to the Atlanta market, and are owned by Dallas-based Consolidated Restaurant Operations, Inc. (CRO).

III Forks is an all-prime steakhouse with existing locations in Dallas, Austin and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Cantina Laredo offers gourmet Mexican dining with 24 locations in eight states.

“Much of what makes Terminus more than simply an office or residential project is the vibrant atmosphere created by our diverse restaurant lineup. Adding III Forks and Cantina Laredo to the project makes Terminus a one-of-a-kind dining destination in Atlanta,” said Larry Gellerstedt, executive vice president and chief development officer for Cousins.

CRO Chief Executive Officer John D. Harkey, Jr. said, “We are extremely excited to serve the Atlanta market. Buckhead is one of the most robust dining and entertainment areas in the country. Terminus 200 is the perfect setting to launch Cantina Laredo, serving gourmet Mexican food, along with our prime steakhouse, III Forks.”

III Forks and Cantina Laredo will join a host of other destination restaurants at Terminus, including AquaKnox, BrickTops, The Flying Biscuit Café, LOLA Bellini Bar & Restaurant and MF Buckhead. In recent months, Terminus has received additional restaurant commitments from Chick-fil-A and Dressed, a new specialty salad restaurant.
