A more than 30-year-old Mexican restaurant chain is expanding with a new location in Sandy Springs, taking over a two-story space near Perimeter Mall.

El Azteca has leased almost 11,000 square feet at Perimeter Town Center, according to a press release.

Atlanta-based commercial real estate firm Ackerman & Co. owns the 20-acre mixed-use project on Peachtree Dunwoody Road. Perimeter Town Center also includes medical office space and restaurants such as One Sushi.

El Azteca will take over the corner that features a wrap-around glass façade and “eye-catching architectural appeal,” said Courtney Brumbelow with Ackerman Retail, who completed the lease with Haley Hartman on behalf of the landlord.

It will be El Azteca’s fourth location. It also operates in Sandy Springs on Roswell Road, Buckhead and Athens, Ga.

“With this location in the heart of the Central Perimeter office submarket, El Azteca benefits from the huge daytime population in the surrounding 29 million square feet of office space, proximity to the ‘Pill Hill’ healthcare district and the area’s growing residential population,” Brumbelow said.
