Mercedes-Benz USA on March 2 released the first drawings of its forthcoming new headquarters building at Abnerathy and Barfield roads in Sandy Springs.
The glass-walled, 225,000-square-foot building reflects the company’s new collaborative workspace style. In comments to the Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber of Commerce last fall, former MBUSA president and CEO Steve Cannon explained that “open-floor, transparent” style and architecture.
“I said to the architects, ‘Build a building around a town hall concept,’” where employees can quickly and easily gather for full, collaborative meetings, Cannon said. “The cubicle culture…that’s going away.”
MBUSA says construction on the new headquarters will begin this spring and continue into early 2018. MBUSA is temporarily headquartered in a Dunwoody office building.
