Selig Enterprises this week announced that 1255 Makers Way, the first adaptive re-use office building at The Works, is now more than 50 percent leased with the signing of the project’s first two office tenants.

Uppercut, a New York City-based commercial and feature film post-production studio, and Conisus, an Atlanta-based provider of hematology, oncology and specialty pharmaceutical brand strategy, business analytics and educational programming to the biopharmaceutical industry, recently secured space in the office building which is one component of the greater 80-acre mixed-use development.

1255 Makers Way, a 65-year-old, former industrial building, houses a total of 47,000 square feet of office space.

“We are curating a mix of forward-thinking companies that embody the creative spirit of the development,” Jim Saine, vice president of industrial and office leasing at Selig, who represented Selig on both leases, said in a press release.

“Uppercut and Conisus are leaders in their industries, both providing unique services, and we’re excited to welcome them to The Works.”

Both Uppercut and Conisus plan to open their offices in early-2020.

Currently home to Ballard Designs’ flagship store, The Works will also welcome a taproom by Scofflaw Brewing—its second Atlanta location, Chattahoochee Food Works, Basik Spaces, Stellar Bodies, and Adelina Social Club.

All in all, The Works, situated near Topgolf Midtown, across multiple phases, comprises 350,000 square feet of retail and entertainment, 500,000 square feet of office space, 500 residences, 200 hotel rooms and 13 acres of green space.

The 27-acre Phase I is currently under construction and scheduled for openings in early 2020.
