Event Summary



490,650 people moved to Metro Atlanta last year. What is causing such an explosion of market activity in Atlanta? Join us as we uncover why the capital of the Peachtree state is attracting so many new residents, and drawing the attention of notable real estate moguls from across the nation. Atlanta has experienced the fourth largest population growth in the country, with an economy that is one of the most diverse in the nation. What is it about the city that is attracting millennials, families, and companies from around the globe to relocate here? What needs to be done to prepare as our city continues to grow by nearly one million per decade? We have gathered a fantastic group of CRE thought leaders, construction & design gurus, and real estate investors to discuss and uncover several of the major trends and themes surrounding Atlanta’s monumental growth. We will be discussing the hottest projects of 2018, such as 1105 West Peachtree, Coda Tech Square, the new Serta Simmons Corporate HQ, and Assembly Yards. The development at

1105 West Peachtree Street

will feature 645,000 square feet of Class A office space, in addition to

and street-level retail,

80 residential units, and a 150-key boutique hotel.

Assembly Yards

is an adaptive-reuse project, establishing a hub for the arts, tech, and creativity. This mixed-use community will be a center of live-work-play, as it will feature premium retail space in addition to Class A office space, multifamily apartments, and a hotel.The

new Serta Simmons Corporate Headquarters,

developed by Holder Properties, will feature approximately 140,000 square feet of office space, including a light assembly space, a 210,000 square foot parking deck, and a showroom. Completion is expected for February 2019.

Coda Tech Square, opening in 2019,

will consist of 645,000 square feet of high-tech office space, right at Technology Square in Midtown. Share your comments, post your photos and ask questions using #BisnowAtlanta on Twitter and Instagram, and follow us at @BisnowAtlanta on Twitter for more local news.
