Facebook has leased an entire floor in T3 West Midtown, a heavy-timber office development from Hines, bringing the development to 65 percent leased, according to a press release Wednesday.
It’s a sign that even amidst the ongoing pandemic, “Atlanta businesses continue to push forward and bring promise for the city’s economic future,” a spokesperson said.
The social media company’s footprint in the new Atlantic Station office building is 35,900 square feet.
“When considering the next phase of our growth in Atlanta, we wanted our newest office space to feature a highly-sustainable design concept and to be situated within a vibrant community,” Jamila Reeves, corporate media relations manager at Facebook, said in the release.
“From open workspaces to creative art installations from local artists, we’re excited to create a new office that inspires collaborative impact and enhances individual employee well-being at T3 West Midtown.”
The seven-story, heavy-timber T3 office building features more than 230,000 square feet of space, including ground-level shared social workspace, a fitness center, outdoor terraces on each floor, a rooftop terrace and an adjacent pocket park.
The announcement comes on the heels of Macy’s Technology’s expansion into the building bringing its e-commerce division to the project, occupying more than 107,000 square feet of space, and Interior Architect’s move into the building taking over 7,000 square feet of space.
“When Hines launched T3 West Midtown in 2018, we set out to build a project that would combine authenticity with state-of-the-art building systems and technology, an exceptional property that our customers could call home,” said Hines managing director Tori Kerr.
“The completion of the project and the announcement of two major tech tenants, Facebook and Macy’s Technology, are true victories for our team in bringing that vision to life.”
T3 West Midtown is part of Hines’ T3 model, which stands for Timber, Transit, and Technology, with five of its kind under development around the United States.
Alongside T3 West Midtown, Hines is also developing Atlantic Yards, the 500,000-square-foot office development, which is slated to deliver late 2020.
Both T3 West Midtown and Atlantic Yards are part of a larger transformation underway at Atlantic Station.
The redevelopment of Atlantic Station will reintroduce the retail village to the marketplace with its state-of-the-art central green and collaboration spaces, enhanced tenant mix, new retail and restaurant offerings, additional hospitality options, and the inclusion of new multifamily residential units.
