Mercedes-Benz to Put Down Roots in Perimeter
Mercedes-Benz is reported to be in final talks to choose an office building in the area.
The luxury car maker is poised to add at least 800 new jobs in Georgia when they relocate headquarters from New Jersey to Atlanta.
The company has been eying the mid-rise Sterling Pointe I and II buildings in Dunwoody, owned by Rubenstein Partners, for the initial rollout of operations. Mercedes-Benz would occupy multiple floors in the buildings for at least two years in a temporary stay until construction is completed on the new 250,000-square-foot headquarters in Sandy Springs.
Sterling Pointe has drawn several big corporate tenants in the past. BellSouth.net Inc. notably leased more than 300,000 square feet in the late 1990s. The building is also home to some of the last big sections of vacant office space left in Perimeter after State Farm Insurance Co. took the lion’s share.
A large-scale move like this one should have a big effect on local businesses and may open doors for further development around Perimeter.
