by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

The Atlanta History Center is assembling a collection of meaningful items that represents Atlanta. The spike pounded into the Eastern Seaboard rail bed and a Coke glass are examples. The project is called “Atlanta in 50 Objects,” and it is intended to be a sort of crowd-sourced visual glossary. The center’s website says it is “actively engaging audiences in the creation of user-generated content to showcase the public’s own interpretation of what makes Atlanta ‘Atlanta.’” If you have a suggestion for an object, fill out the short form at the Atlanta History Center's website, www.atlantahistorycenter.com/atlanta-50-objects.

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

Midtown Atlanta, which recently landed the headquarters of fintech giant NCR Corp., is drawing looks from another large technology-focused enterprise. An unidentified company has expressed interest in taking up to 100,000 square feet to co-anchor a more than 600,000 square foot mixed-used development planned in the heart of Georgia Tech. The company is most likely vying for access to Tech students. "Economic development once meant building factories next to rivers to take advantage of water power," said Stephen Fleming, a Georgia Tech vice president. "Now, it means building creative-class workspaces next to a research university to take advantage of brain power."
