Construction efforts are fully underway to revive a small but highly visible building that’s been moldering for a decade near a marquee Midtown corner.

Contracting and design firm Chandlee Construction is remaking the former sports bar and bodega at 110 10th Street into an Asian dining concept with rooftop seating and a bar. It’s just east of the Peachtree and 10th street intersection, a site that’s been marketed as the corner of Atlanta’s “Main and Main Streets.”

According to the contracting company, the Stix Asian Cuisine restaurant is bringing Midtown designs “inspired by a NYC award-winning legendary location.” The same contractor recently did design and build work for Pour Taproom’s Interlock location.

Stix’s placeholder website says the restaurant is coming soon. 

The long-vacant building at 112 10th Street once operated as Jocks & Jills Sports Grill during Midtown’s more raucous nightlife heyday. It was also a short-lived bodega called Mamanoes that shuttered in 2012.

The entire 3.8-acre block is owned by Dewberry Capital Corporation, according to property records.

By November last year, renovation efforts had removed the roof of the former Jocks & Jills Sports Grill space. Submitted

Prior to expansion efforts, the building included about 5,700 square feet and “plenty of parking,” per a LoopNet listing from 2014. The valley of asphalt behind the building verifies that assertion.

It’s not the only construction activity in the immediate area.

Next door, Midtown Alliance is leading efforts to install the 10th Street Temporary Park project, which began construction in July. Expect three “outdoor rooms” with that greenspace—one with a fenced dog park, one with games such as ping-pong and cornhole, and another with a climbable structure—at the northeast corner of Peachtree Street’s intersection with 10th Street.
