“We’re thrilled to consolidate our Atlanta operations at Promenade,” Bob Mathews, president of Colliers International Atlanta, said in a news release. “The central location in the heart of Midtown - coupled with Cousins’ comprehensive improvements to the building - makes it a perfect place for Colliers to retain and recruit top talent while continuing to grow the business in the years ahead.”
Cousins’ improvements to the Promenade complex include a redesigned 15th street entrance and garden, an enhanced parking deck, a new fitness facility, the chef-driven Bistro 1230 and The Bean Counter coffee shop.
“Having done business with Colliers for many years, we’re excited to expand our relationship with such a first class firm,” said Cousins CEO Larry Gellerstedt in the release. “We’re particularly delighted for Promenade to receive this type of endorsement from one of the most respected names in the real estate business.”
