Comcast Regional Headquarters at The Battery Atlanta
Anchoring a mixed-use complex with an office building is nothing new to Wakefield Beasley. But, doing so with one of the largest media and technology companies in the world that invested around $100 million in a multi-terabit network to make the development one of the most connected in the United States, does not happen every day. Located within The Battery Atlanta, which is adjacent to the new home of the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park, Wakefield Beasley was tasked with the design of the 60 acre site. For Comcast Regional Headquarters, the nine-story office tower which includes an Innovation Lab and 20,000 square feet of restaurant and hospitality space facing the SunTrust Park plaza, the firm aimed to create a signature design that complements the dynamic surrounding environment while providing corporate space for the Central Division headquarters of Comcast and its 1,000+ employees. Working together, the firms’ retail, multi-family and corporate office studios developed a unique office design despite challenging topography and a tight site. Wakefield Beasley worked as one team to streamline the process, and utilize the firm’s full breadth of expertise.
