Atlanta Real Estate Veterans Launch The Atlantic Companies

Jim Meyer, managing partner of Atlantic Capital Properties, and Mack Reese, managing partner of Gateway Ventures Real Estate, have formed The Atlantic Companies. The new venture, headquartered in Atlanta and operating across the Southeast, offers in-house real estate services.

Joining the firm to lead its newly formed acquisitions business are Taylor Smith and Andy Johns. With the addition of this new acquisition platform, The Atlantic Companies enhances its ability to execute projects leveraging compatible experience in development, construction management, finance and capital structures, acquisitions, property management and leasing.

“Since the creation of Gateway Ventures 25 years ago, we have sought to assemble a collection of like-minded people with compatible skills to create a comprehensive team approach to every aspect of real estate investment and development, and to provide those services across a diversity of product types to combat the cyclical nature of our industry,” said Mack Reese.
