Ponce City Market is continuing to draw attention from top-tier potential tenants. As we reported earlier, athenahealth has decided to lease a large amount of space in the mixed-use development project – at least 75,000 SF – making it the project’s first office tenant. The 140 employees who currently work out of athenahealth’s Alpharetta office will move to the new location when it delivers in 2014. Over the next five years, the company plans to grow the number of employees in Atlanta from 140 to 500.
athenahealth’s presence Downtown is a huge positive for Atlanta. Not only is Atlanta gaining another sought-after company, but it’s gaining another IT company, a sector that Atlanta has seen explosive growth in over the last 5 years. According to the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Atlanta is home to more than 250 IT companies which combined generate billions of dollars in revenue.Share
