Ever wonder what companies gravitate towards certain submarkets of Atlanta. Check out who makes up majority of Midtown.

Large deals in Atlanta have varied by industry, but tech and IT leasing are driving absorption, particularly in Midtown. Among large leases executed over the past few years, Midtown has captured much of the space filled by tech-leaning companies or divisions across the metro. NCR moved thousands of employees from Gwinnett County to its Midtown build-to-suit, and Kaiser Permanente is hiring 900 IT workers in Midtown through 2019. Other IT operations of Fortune 500 companies that recently announced a move to Midtown include Honeywell, Anthem, BlackRock, and GE. Buckhead has started to see an influx of tech tenant leasing in recent quarters, as well. For example, Salesforce recently took three more floors at its MARTA-adjacent tower, and FleetCor is moving its HQ from Peachtree Corners to 46,000 SF at Terminus in late 2019.
