Facebook Inks 36K-SF Office Lease at T3 West Midtown in Atlanta

International real estate firm Hines has announced that Facebook has signed a 35,900-square-foot lease at T3 West Midtown, the Southeast’s first heavy-timber office development.

The seven-story, heavy-timber T3 office building is the first of its kind in the market featuring more than 230,000 square feet of space, including ground-level shared social workspace, a fitness center, large outdoor terraces on each floor, a rooftop terrace and an adjacent pocket park. Macy’s Technology recently expanded into the building, bringing its ecommerce division to the project, occupying over 107,000 square feet of space. The project is now 65% leased.

“T3 West Midtown is by design a highly differentiated office property introduced to Atlanta with the intention of attracting forward-thinking, innovative customers,” said John Heagy, senior managing director at Hines.

“Facebook is the market leader in the social networking realm, and it’s only fitting for the company to expand its Atlanta office to one of the city’s most progressive, sustainable office buildings. West Midtown is a true contender for Atlanta’s new tech hub, and Facebook’s move into T3 only reaffirms that.”
