Streetside Retail, a new Atlanta commercial real estate investment and development company, is wasting no time in redeveloping the Los Reyes restaurant site at 122 N. Morningside Drive.

One client already booked for the site is Peachtree Immediate Care. In an earlier interview, Bill Miller, chief executive officer of CRH Healthcare, confirmed the company is “taking about 60 percent of that building. Lankford Construction started recently and we will begin in about 60 days with our buildout. We are excited to enter the  market and to extend our network north of our Acworth center.”

A second tenant is being sought.

The restaurant, a Cartersville tradition for more than 30 years, closed in March.

About Streetside Retail: The company is so new that its website is still under development and its Facebook page is just up and running. From the “about” section: “Streetside Retail is a commercial real estate investment and development company. We specialize in developing ground up real estate and acquiring shopping centers. Streetside also assists with leasing and managing real estate for our investors and partners.”

“Gas prices could drop another 5 cents this week, unless the market suddenly shifts course,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Prices at the pump are still adjusting to the recent drop in oil and wholesale gasoline, due to the potential of increased crude output from OPEC. However, there is still volatility in the market, and pump prices could move higher if OPEC decides against easing production cuts at a meeting later this month.”

Saudi Arabia increased production last month by 100,000 barrels a day, after curtailing output by nearly two years. The Kingdom was part of an agreement with other OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers to reduce output in hopes of raising oil prices. The production cut worked; the oil market tightened and crude prices reached near 4-year highs. However, there are growing concerns that strong demand would soon outpace supplies, and economies will suffer as a result of the higher prices. Because of this, the participants in this agreement are set to reconvene on June 22 to discuss increasing output.

U.S. crude prices settled at $65.74 per barrel on Friday – a 7 cent decline from the week before, and $6.50 less than this year’s high.
