A financial company called NCR is in discussions to open their new headquarters in Midtown Atlanta, a company move that will bring about 1,200 new jobs to the area while also moving hundreds of jobs from Gwinett County. But Midtown isn’t the only location on the company’s radar—NCR also looked at sites in Gwinnett, Alpharetta and Central Perimeter. The desired Midtown space for the company would be a 225,000 square foot to 275,000 square foot building, with a layout similar to Coca Cola’s Midtown headquarters. Other rumors have suggested that NCR would build its own space in the form of a 10-story office tower.
NCR wants a location with good visibility from the heavily trafficked Interstate 75-85 connector. The company is said to have looked at land on either side of the interstate, including near Technology Square and Northyards Business Park. As the retail real estate in Atlanta continues to tighten in terms to competition and availability, the decision needs to come soon from the company. Midtown is definitely a strong contender in the decision thanks to the strong technology community in the area.
