THE GORILLA IS BACK!
If you're in Atlanta CRE, you know ?The Gorilla Building? in the Cumberland/Galleria submarket.
 
THE GORILLA IS BACK!
The nickname was born during a past downturn when the landlord stuck a blow-up gorilla  on the roof to generate buzz. Now, in another bad economy, Ackerman & Co. is trotting the ape back out at Powers Pointe (that's the property's drier given name), a 122K SF five-story edifice at 5665 New Northside Drive. For those who get the inside joke, the blue-eyed plastic primate wears a badge that proclaims: ?I'm Back.? For potential tenants, there's also a sign offering free space.
