Avison Young Tapped to Lease Atlanta’s First Flex Office Building

Avison Young has announced a new partnership with the owner of the historic Flatiron Building in downtown Atlanta. The firm has been tapped to lease the entire 47,697 square feet at the property as flexible office space.

Located at 84 Peachtree St. NW, the building is Atlanta’s oldest skyscraper and was built in 1897. The landlord, FlatironCity, is represented by Avison Young’s Monica Speak and Chris Godfrey of the firm’s Atlanta office. FlatironCity will offer flexible term lengths which are not readily available in the market today, including Hourly/Daily usage, and 1–36-month agreements, in addition to modern amenities equipped for businesses of all sizes.

“A company’s two biggest expenses are payroll and office space. As businesses emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working to make sure we allow for appropriate flexibility when companies need it most,” said Arun Nijhawan, owner at FlatironCity. “I selected Avison Young because they not only have a dedicated Flexible Office Solutions team, but they understood my vision and the need for added flexibility and creative leasing solutions for FlatironCity’s future tenants.”
