Mercedes-Benz USA will build a new, state-of-the-art headquarters facility on 12 acres near the intersection of Barfield and Abernathy roads  in Sandy Springs, the company announced Feb. 3.

The property, among the last large undeveloped tracts in the Perimeter area, is known primarily as part of the property near Glenridge Hall, a 1920s-era mansion. The carmaker said in a statement that it planned to build its permanent U.S. headquarters facility there and expects to complete the new facility in 2018.

In July, the company will move its headquarters operations into temporary office space in Sterling Pointe II, a 186,000-square-foot office building in Dunwoody, the company said in a press release.

“Our ambition is to be more than a great car company,” Stephen Cannon, president and CEO of the company. “We want to be among the best companies in the world and Atlanta will serve as a perfect foundation to foster that ambition in the future. We are looking forward to calling Atlanta home.”

The company is moving its U.S. headquarters from Montvale, N.J. It announced its new Sandy Springs location Feb. 3 in a press conference at the Georgia Capitol. The company said it will hire hundreds of new employees in the Atlanta area.

“Mercedes-Benz USA’s planned headquarters location in Sandy Springs is great for the city, metro Atlanta and for the entire state of Georgia,” said Gov. Nathan Deal.

  1. More cement and more cars-just what Sandy Springs needs…..Abernathy and 400–bumper to bumper for HOURS each and every day…Progress, Atlanta style, This area is becoming just plain ugly. Yep, this city needs more leased Benz’s…

    1. If you don’t see the tremendous benefit to Atlanta of Mercedes moving their HQ, Im assuming that GED of yours isn’t doing you any good. I’m from Atlanta, live in LA and I can tell you that complaining about Atlanta traffic is now laughable to me. You have no idea..

      PS – No one cares about your millennial opinion buddy. And yes, I’d like fries with that

  2. I’ve visited, even lectured at Glenridge Hall. It’s breathtaking beautiful, elegant, the site of movie shoots. A part of the past, present, and future every community needs. Saying that “it could always be worse” invites the worse to become part of our lives. We need opponents discussing issues, not the kind of conversation that I’m reading here.–Tom Reilly
