Staff Report From Metro Atlanta CEO

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

WeWork, along with Governor Nathan Deal and leadership from the Metro Atlanta Chamber and Invest Atlanta, celebrated the official grand opening of WeWork’s third location in Atlanta, 1372 Peachtree, and the company’s continued growth in Georgia.

“We are thrilled to continue expanding across Georgia with our third Atlanta location, WeWork 1372 Peachtree,” said Bobby Condon, WeWork General Manager for the Southeast. “It is only fitting to build upon this growth in a creative and diverse community like Atlanta but also in the No. 1 state in which to do business. 1372 Peachtree, which will now serve as the WeWork headquarters for the entire southeast region, offers Atlanta’s top creators - people of all ages and companies of all sizes - the space, culture and flexibility that will help recruit and retain the talent they need for their business to flourish.”

At the Grand Opening, Governor Deal, Hala Moddelmog of the Metro Atlanta Chamber, Kevin Johnson of Invest Atlanta and Larry Williams of the Technology Association of Georgia provided welcoming remarks on WeWork and congratulated the company on their growth and expansion in Atlanta.

“As the capital of the Southeast, the Hollywood and Silicon Valley of the South, and as the greatest place to live, work, and call home, Atlanta has a thriving startup, tech, music, and creative-industries landscape,” said Deal. “WeWork helps provide these creators with a global network of more than 175,000 members in addition to workspaces, professional services, and resources necessary for success. Whether they be a one-person, two-person, 25-person business or whatever size they may be in their initial stages, this is a great place to be in order to give them that start.”

Throughout the event, attendees enjoyed breakfast catered by Midtown neighbor Joy Cafe and complimentary, professional headshots taken by WeWork member Diversity Photos. Later this week, WeWork 1372 Peachtree will host a launch party on Thursday, January 25 at 6 PM. RSVP for the event here.
