According to Jefferson County public documents, Serendipitous LLC has sold the former restaurant property of Pure Five LLC to Jefferson County on March 30, 2019. The transaction closed at $1 million.
Serendipitous LLC is listed with a local address that shares the property it recently acquired. It's registered to MELT coowner Harriett reis, which indicates affiliation.
Pure Five LLC has listed an address at 119 Roswell Street in Alpharetta Georgia that it shares Next 2 PURE - a full service events venue - indicating a connection.
