2017 is going to be a great year for Atlanta. There are so many interesting projects happening around our great city. Below is a list of three of our favorites. Be sure to visit our blog and let us know which projects you think are exciting in Atlanta.
- Opening Day at Suntrust Park – Like any major sports team relocation there is some uncertainty regarding the move but in general we are very excited. We feel the move to Cobb County with the development of The Battery will provide fans with a better experience. We are also excited for our tenants at Powers Ferry, who we feel will benefit from the economic boost of the area and increase exposure.
- Georgia’s Film Industry – Governor Nathan Deal has announced that 2017 is the Year of Georgia Film! “With a total economic impact of $59 billion, the tourism industry is an integral part of Georgia’s dynamic business sector and continues to be a major economic driver,” Deal said. “Today, this industry sustains more than 439,000 jobs across the state, making up approximately 10.3 percent of our total workforce.” (Atlanta Business Chronicle) One hotspot for film is in Conyers, GA where we have space for lease or purchase in Wall Street Conyers.
- Downtown Peachtree Street Redevelopments – Downtown Atlanta is experiencing a wave of urbanization as major redevelopment projects try and meet the demand for walkability and a metropolitan lifestyle. Projects include the renovation of the old J.C. Penny Building, the Emory Proton Treatment Center, and the Rufus Rose House redevelopment.
