Texas-based WorkSuites is opening two locations in Atlanta's suburbs with plans for another four by the end of 2023.

The firm has inked a deal for nearly 26K SF at Preston Ridge II, a 150K SF office building off Preston Ridge Road in North Fulton County, according to a press release. WorkSuites Founder Flip Howard told Bisnow the firm also leased a location at Pennant Park near The Battery at Truist Park in the Cumberland/Galleria submarket.

WorkSuites, which operates more than 20 locations in the Lone Star State, is the latest entrant into Atlanta's coworking scene, as the pandemic and the struggles companies have bringing employees back to the office have fueled growth in the industry.


Japanese conglomerate YKK Corp., which specializes in fasteners, doors and windows, has sewn up an expansion in Downtown Atlanta. YKK will occupy a full floor, around 20K SF, at 101 Marietta, the 667K SF tower off Marietta Street owned by Dilweg. YKK already operates a showroom in the building.

Blaze sold the property to the LLC IMP Stadium Walk, which was tied to GID's Boston address, according to state records. The price works out to $377K per unit. Blaze acquired Stadium Walk just north of The Battery at Truist Park for $70.4M in 2018, according to records.

A small shopping center nearly 25 miles west of Downtown Atlanta has sold for around $845 per SF, among the most paid for retail on a per-SF basis this year, according to Databank.
