Today, the Cobb Chamber announced the sale of its headquarters building at 240 Interstate North Parkway and its plans to lease 17,517 square feet of office space at 1100 Circle 75 in Cumberland on the full 10th floor. The Chamber building and 1.7 acre property was purchased by Pope & Land, a 40-plus-year-old real estate company responsible for many developments throughout the Southeast. The Chamber and its tenants, the Cumberland CID and Cobb Community Foundation, are expected to relocate to the new location by early 2020.
“After an extensive search for our new home, we ultimately selected 1100 Circle 75 for its prime location in the heart of the Cumberland CID,” said Sharon Mason, President and CEO of the Cobb Chamber. “The Cobb Chamber is experiencing a time of tremendous growth and momentum, and we are excited to match our brand with this new space that will help us tell Cobb County’s story to the 12,000-plus members and guests we host each year, along with the prospective companies we are recruiting to Cobb.”
Located across from SunTrust Park and The Battery Atlanta, the full-floor lease is located on the 10th floor and offers 360-degree views of metro Atlanta. The new space will feature meeting rooms and event spaces equipped with top-of-the-line technology, modern workspaces, huddle rooms to foster collaboration, a bistro-style break room and an overall elegant office environment filled with natural sunlight.
Several Cobb Chamber members provided expertise during the building sale and property search. Chad Koenig and Trey Dove of Cushman & Wakefield represented the Chamber in the lease negotiations. Andrew Walker of Colliers International represented the Chamber on the sale of its former headquarters building. The Chamber has selected Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio as the architectural design firm and Darden to serve as project manager. Choate Construction is building out the space that is leased by SK Commercial Realty. Turnerboone is the project’s furnishings vendor, and Unified Technology Systems is providing the audio visual design and installation.
“Circle 75 allowed the Cobb Chamber the opportunity to create a forward-thinking space that’s a reflection of all of the great things about Cobb County while offering a fiscally responsible alternative compared to other buildings in the market,” said Chad Koenig, Senior Director with Cushman & Wakefield.
The Cobb Chamber’s new location at 1100 Circle 75 offers many advantages to the organization. The new office space tells a compelling visual story, illustrating the Chamber’s work in the region and its role in bringing landmark projects to the county.
“It’s important to our leadership that our new location reflect the Chamber’s values and serve as a wise steward of our members’ investments,” said Mitch Rhoden, 2019 Cobb Chamber Chairman and President and CEO of Futren Corporation. “1100 Circle 75 more than meets that criteria – members, Chamber employees and tenants will have a new space that inspires pride and builds excitement.”
Mason added, “The former headquarters sits on 1.7 acres. The buyer, Pope & Land, is a very reputable organization with a long history of developing innovative and remarkable landmarks throughout the Southeast. We know that they will continue to make our community proud with the new property.”
