As renovations to Crosstown Concourse, a 1.5 million square foot structure housing businesses, apartments, a high school, and a YMCA, near the crossing of Cleveland Street and North Parkway, wrap up, three tenants pulled permits for spots in the building Tuesday.

Crosstown Arts, co-founder and co-developer of Crosstown Concourse, pulled a nearly $5 million permit for a space inside the building.

American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC), the fundraising arm of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, is moving parts of its operations into the building. That group pulled a permit Tuesday for nearly $6 million.

Another new tenant, Farm Burger, an Atlanta-based burger joint offering grass-fed beef, will join Crosstown. That company will spend about $300,000 for its space at Crosstown, according to a building permit.

Other expected tenants of Crosstown include, A Step Ahead Foundation, City Leadership, SunTrust, and about 20 other businesses and organizations.

This is not including the number of eateries that will occupy spaces, such as MemPops, Area 51 Ice Cream, and Mama Gaia, an organic vegetarian restaurant that recently opened its doors to the public at the end of last month.

Crosstown is set to open August 19 of this year, a date very close to the original opening date of the Sears, Roebuck and Co. distribution center, the building's original occupant, in August of 1927.
