MEET OUR SPONSOR: BARRY REAL ESTATE
Big moves happen daily for Atlanta's Barry Real Estate Cos, which markets, develops, and manages properties throughout the Southeast. Director of project leasing Andy Sumlin is the keeper of Rubenstein Partners' 2M SF Central Perimeter office portfolio (Atlanta's largest, including 64 & 66 Perimeter Center East, former HQ for Southern Co, and Philips Electronics), where Andy promises up to 500k SF of contiguous space. Plus, the property is on I-285 just east of Ashford Dunwoody (honk if you love a signage opportunity). Andy also has 200k SF of contiguous space at the amenity-rich Terraces (30 restaurants within walking distance). He says the Central Perimeter Improvement District is preparing another interchange at Hammond Drive and Georgia 400 and reworking the Ashford Dunwoody/285 interchange as a DDI (Diverging Diamond Interchange). Expect traffic to decrease 40%, making the Central Perimeter more central than ever. More on Barry Real Estate here.
