Summeour Architects Leases 409 Bishop Street To Fifth Group

Major Midtown Events Venue Now Under Control of Fifth Group Restaurants

409 Bishop Street

ATLANTA, GA - October 15, 2011. The Fifth Group Restaurants has leased 409 Bishop Street, known as Summerour Studio, and will continue to operate the venue as an events facility. Over the last few years the Studio has hosted many wedding receptions, philanthropic parties and other social functions. The building, which dates to the early 20th century was purchased in 2006 by Keith Summerour and subsequently underwent a magnificent renovation which preserved the building's historic character and unveiled many structural elements which had been covered over in the ensuing years. Summerour operated his architecture practice in the building but as the economy shifted, the open area which had housed an array of architects was converted to event space which was operated by a previous events operator. The Fifth Group gives the ownership of the property the kind of solid tenant which will continue to use this facility as an events venue but brings a stellar reputation, financial strength and a care for the building which it deserves.


Ed Bosbyshell of Ed Bosbyshell & Associates, who had originally assisted Keith Summerour with the purchase of this building, was engaged to find a tenant for the property and after putting in place an aggressive marketing plan was able to develop a number of prospects for the property. In the end, the Fifth Group turned out to make the most sense for the owner and the property.
