When Microsoft began its search for a new office complex in the spring of 2019, Atlanta-based brokerage firm T. Dallas Smith & Co. had just the spot in mind. Atlantic Yards, a massive mixed-use development in Atlanta’s popular Midtown area, was an ideal location for the tech giant.
“With other markets also under consideration, it was no guarantee that the State of Georgia would secure this business opportunity with Microsoft,” said Dexter Warrior, CCIM, COO of T. Dallas Smith & Co., the largest African American-owned commercial real estate firm in the country focused exclusively on tenant and buyer representation. “Once the City of Atlanta made the short list, we completed a robust market research effort with a particular focus on locations in the heart of the city.”
Atlantic Yards was a spec development that was already under construction when T. Dallas Smith & Co. began negotiations. Eventually, Microsoft decided to lease both buildings, for a total of 523,000 sf, that will bring 1,500 new jobs to the city. For the brokers, however, that meant they had to deconstruct a multi-tenant development into a single use development.
Despite the massive disruption to commercial real estate — in addition to day-to-day life — the client viewed this deal as one that wouldn’t be too vulnerable to the immediate impacts of COVID-19. Under development when the pandemic hit the U.S., Atlantic Yards wasn’t greatly affected by the economic and public health crises.
“This transaction was a priority for our client’s long-term plans to expand its presence on the east coast,” Cedric Matheny, CCIM, says. “We were seeing other deals around the country meet huge challenges. However, we were fortunate that Microsoft did not alter its plans.”
With three CCIM designees involved in the deal — Corey Ferguson, CCIM, joined Matheny and Warrior — Matheny recognized the importance of checking and double-checking every detail.
“We were fortunate to have three team members on this transaction that are CCIM designees including our Dexter Warrior, Corey Ferguson and myself,” Matheny says. “We all speak the same language in terms of analysis and understanding the various complexities of a transaction of this size and scope. It’s always good to have another set of qualified eyes so that we can cover all the angles.”
