Seth Chandlee, CEO of Chandlee Holdings and a founding partner of Chandlee and Sons Construction Company, commented on July 25, 2017, “The kick-off meeting for this project just wrapped up today. This is a new two-story ‘Whole Foods’ type gourmet grocery that offers a dine-in market, drive-thru service, a bar, and a restaurant. The concept has an elevator, dumbwaiters that go between the first and second floors, and an open ceiling design.This is another hit in Buckhead for us!”
Chandlee and Sons signed a contract with Savi Provisions for this gourmetin the heart of Buckhead off Pharr Road and Fulton Avenue. There are locations on Peachtree Street in Midtown, Elizabeth Street in Inman Park, Dresden Drive in Brookhaven and another location in Buckhead on Roswell Road – all in the Atlanta, Georgia vicinity.
“What a cool building,” remarked Seth on October 10. “The location of Savi Provisions on Pharr Road in Buckhead is in the best area. And our newest Project Manager, Michael McCall, is absolutely killing it on this project. This is a complex project for a new manager and Michael is running it as a professional. It is on schedule to finish in a few months. Our thanks to Chip Coffey who got us the referral.”
The second floor has a roof-top terrace with table seating for one hundred-fifty-six persons and a large bar area. There is another bar with seating for twenty-two at the entrance on the bottom floor, along with an office for the manager. Restrooms for both men and women are located on both floors, and the elevator is located to the right upon entering the store. There is a large kitchen located on the first floor and a coffee bar. The design is by Kuo Diedrich whose office is in Suite 160 at 730 Peachtree Street in Atlanta.
The crews repaired, poured, and finished the concrete floor slab; installed the elevator; and constructed the drive-thru window. Our crew performed the exterior work on the second floor and interior finishes. The renovation was performed by YLH Construction and Chandlee and Sons Construction performed the build.
Seth commented on October 11, “This is Buckhead’s coolest new location. Take a Whole Foods type market and marry it to a Starbucks, add a rooftop bar, then toss in a drive-thru and a walkup window, now make it cook with an elevator to the second floor – and you have Savi Provisions Grocery – a Chandlee and Sons Construction Company build!”
On January 4, 2018, Seth visited the jobsite again making these comments, “The Savi Provision project in Buckhead is wrapping up. It is scheduled to open soon.”
The Certificate of Occupancy was issued March 5. This link provides a video of the new store: https://www.facebook.com/SaviProvisionsBuckhead/videos/10154634694361156/.
