A new office complex is proposed for Barfield Road and Mount Vernon Highway in Sandy Springs’ booming corporate-headquarters corridor along Ga. 400.

Dubbed NorthPlace, the 3.7-acre site would be anchored by two office towers, one around six stories and one around 10 stories, along with build-to-suit structures, according to a press release. The development team includes Sandy Springs-based MidCity Real Estate Partners and Atlanta-based Crocker Partners.

“By adding the ability for users to own medium-size buildings at this location and submarket, considered by many to be the economic center of Atlanta, we expect significant interest from many tenants and users,” said MidCity President Kirk Demetrops in the press release.

The site is near the forthcoming new headquarters for Mercedes-Benz USA and the existing headquarters of Newell Rubbermaid and UPS, among other notable office spaces.

  1. More and more homeowners are moving out of sandy springs,the traffic is increasingly obnoxious. Hopefully the Council/Mayor will continue to put a hold on new projects…

    These new office buildings are what’s keeping your taxes low. Chill out. These new buildings are two blocks from a Marta station. Once M.Benz HQ, 100 Northpark and Abernathy 400 buildings are completed you will have a mini downtown in this area. With this large tax base, Sandy Springs can go 30 years before raising your taxes.

  3. It’s hard to understand and sad to see that Sandy Springs has turned into a congested town and a traffic disaster. Developments on top of developments, some online already, with many more to come online in the coming months and years. Congregated within walking distance of each other, the community wonders if the city even understands what it is doing approving every zoning request with slight modifications. The city has no idea of how to stop this madness.
