ATLANTA, GA, May 19, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Ackerman & Co. recently signed a 15-year, 28,275-square-foot lease to the State Office of Vital Records and State Office of EMS and Trauma at 1680 Phoenix Boulevard, located in the eight-building, 330,000-square-foot Phoenix Office Park in College Park, Ga., near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The Georgia Department of Public Health recently held a ribbon-cutting celebration to mark the opening of the new location for the two state offices, which relocated to Phoenix Office Park from 2600 Skyland Drive in Brookhaven. The Office of EMS and Trauma and the Office of Vital Records occupy the entire 1680 Phoenix Boulevard building, which is owned by Ackerman & Co.
Frank Farrell, senior vice president of Leasing for Ackerman & Co., represented the landlord in the lease transaction and Erin Smith of Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant.
"Phoenix Office Park provides much-improved office space as well as a strong technology infrastructure that ensures the efficient operation of these vital state offices," said Farrell. "The upgraded space will also enable the Office of Vital Records to carry out its plan to update its records storage. We're very pleased to accommodate the long-term space needs of these two Department of Public Health offices."
The Brookhaven building the Office of Vital Records and Office of EMS and Trauma had occupied was previously a 1940s-era school house. 1680 Phoenix Boulevard was built in 1991.
The two-story, Class A office building serves as administrative offices for the two tenants in addition to providing storage space for public health records.
The 100-acre Phoenix Office Park office campus features a conference facility and on-site security and management, and it is located only five minutes from the entrance of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and near the College Park MARTA rail station.
