Comcast to Anchor Braves Stadium Office?
Comcast could be landing at the new Braves stadium. Sources tell us that Comcast could be the lead office tenant at SunTrust Park's mixed-use project, securing in excess of 100k SF. This would in essence be a consolidation of various offices in the Cumberland/Galleria area, and perhaps even an expansion of additional space in the Atlanta area that could add new jobs to the market. Comcast's Alex Horwitz confirmed that the telecom giant has been eyeing the Braves project, but no deal has been reached. “We are growing and investing in the Southeast and continue to look at a number of options to accommodate future growth. We have had discussions and looked at the feasibility of the Braves’ new complex along with numerous other projects but no agreements have been made. We are growing and investing in the Southeast and continue to look at a number of options to accommodate future growth," Alex wrote in an email.
A potential lure for Comcast would be signage on the office building, sources say, marketing exposure to the thousands who are projected to flock to the games and the shops and restaurants at the project. This deal would be in in addition to Comcast's plan regional HQ consolidation in Peachtree Corners announced by Gov Nathan Deal today. As we previously reported here, Comcast has leased 88k SF at 6200 The Corners Pkwy, the 143k SF office building nested in a wooded campus that acted as the home to the former Wells REIT. The Atlanta Business Chronicle previously reported that Comcast has been scouting for upwards of 150k SF here in Atlanta.
