International real estate firm Hines and Invesco Real Estate have signed Microsoft Corp. to a 523,000-square-foot, full-building office lease at the Atlantic Yards office development. The software giant announced plans last week to open a new office at the project, which is expected to create 1,500 new high-tech jobs in Atlanta’s West Midtown neighborhood.
Microsoft’s Atlantic Yards office will serve as a client-facing workplace and focus on artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud services. Tenant amenities at the project include an expansive courtyard, rooftop gardens, private balconies and open-air terraces.
“Even before we began construction on Atlantic Yards, we knew we had an opportunity to do something really special,” said John Heagy, senior managing director at Hines. “West Midtown may have been underappreciated as an office market in the past, but it won’t be anymore. Microsoft’s next generation of talent will be blocks away at Georgia Tech, and once they occupy Atlantic Yards, Microsoft will have unmatched access, retail and restaurant options and a working environment deliberately designed to foster creativity.”
