Law Firm AGG Signs Four-Floor Renewal with KBS in Midtown Atlanta
KBS has signed a four-floor lease extension with 72-year-old business law firm Arnall Golden Gregory LLP (AGG) for headquarters space at 171 17th St., a 510,268-square-foot Class A office building in Midtown Atlanta. The property, located within the larger Atlantic Station mixed-use project, is part of Singapore-based PRIME US REIT’s portfolio. KBS serves as the U.S.-based asset manager for the portfolio.
The transaction represents AGG’s desire to be centrally located at a top-quality office property with easy access to MARTA, as well as downtown and Buckhead, according to Marc DeLuca, Eastern regional president of KBS.
““The region is increasingly drawing in global tenants, and well-established firms such as AGG are attracted to 171 17th for all it has to offer,” he said.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Glenn Kolker and Sonia Winfield represented KBS. AGG was represented by Newmark’s Greg Katz and Taylor Senter.
