First mentioned in April, the Atlantic Yards project in Atlanta is moving ahead–and has the potential to nudge Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn further down in Google searches.
According to a 5/30/17 press release, Hines and Invesco Real Estate Announce T3 West Midtown and Atlantic Yards:
Hines, the international real estate firm, and Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate investment manager, today announced a joint venture on behalf of one of Invesco Real Estate’s institutional clients to develop two progressive office projects in Atlanta totalling 700,000 square feet. T3 West Midtown will be a 200,000-square-foot heavy timber office development and Atlantic Yards will consist of 500,000 square feet of progressive office space in two buildings. Both projects are located on sites within Atlantic Station in the flourishing Midtown submarket. Hines will work with Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA) as the design architect for both T3 West Midtown and Atlantic Yards. DLR Group will be the architect of record for T3 West Midtown, and Wakefield Beasley & Associates (WBA) will be the architect of record for Atlantic Yards. The teams will design highly differentiated product for the West Midtown market, which is in high demand by tenants seeking authentic, approachable, collaborative office space in a warehouse style without the challenges of adaptive reuse. …Once the site of the old Atlantic Steel Mill and railroads, Atlantic Station today is a thriving, highly successful 138-acre mixed-use master development with retail, multifamily, hotel and office. Atlantic Station is directly north of Georgia Tech where tenants are looking to attract and retain knowledge workers with superior technical skills.
