“Our ability to renew and expand leases with these organizations, several of which are long-term tenants, speaks to Peachtree Center’s status as the office location of choice in downtown Atlanta,” said Roach.

Spanning six buildings, Peachtree Center’s focal point is The Hub, a vibrant social destination with more than 50 restaurants and retail shops connected to 2.3 million square feet of office space and three world-class hotels offering more than 4,000 rooms. The Hub features an eclectic mix of onsite events, including the Green Market seasonal farmer’s market, Atlanta Downtown Restaurant Week and Music in the Mall live entertainment.

“The fully transformed Hub is a dynamic amenity that’s connective, collaborative and creative, providing tenants and visitors with an invigorating city within a city,” said Roach.

Peachtree Center is easily accessible with interconnected, covered walkways, a MARTA station and walkability to Georgia State University, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, State Farm Arena, Centennial Olympic Park and Georgia World Congress Center.
