Commercial real estate investment, development and management company Granite Properties and MetLife Investment Management have broken ground on Midtown Union. The project is a large-scale mixed-use development in Midtown Atlanta that will serve as global independent investment management firm Invesco’s future global headquarters.
Designed by Cooper Carry with Brasfield & Gorrie serving as general contractor, Midtown Union will encompass nearly a full city block. The development is slated to include a 26-story, 606,000-square-foot office building, a 355-unit residential tower atop eight levels of parking developed by StreetLights Residential and a 12-story, 205-room boutique hotel developed by Stormont Hospitality Group and the Allen Morris Co. The project is also slated to include an extension of Arts Center Way, which will create a new pedestrian-friendly retail destination with 30,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and green space.
“Granite is excited to break ground on Midtown Union together with our partner MetLife Investment Management and we’re honored to develop Invesco’s global headquarters,” said John Robbins, senior managing director at Granite Properties. “Midtown Union will be a customer-centric development ideal for live, work and play. The office building is designed to attract and retain top talent with an innovative and productive work experience in a walkable neighborhood.”
Midtown Union is being leased by JLL and is slated to open in summer 2022.
