Technology Square

Opened in 2003, the originally 1.4 million SF Georgia Tech-sponsored innovation district encompasses education, research, hospitality, office and retail and serves as a new urban 'main street' for the campus and the Midtown Atlanta community.  Revitalizing 8 blocks of an area of deteriorated & abandoned buildings and lots, the $380 million project is recognized nationally as a standard of urban development.

A magnet for tech startups and university spinoffs, the area has attracted industry innovation centers from Cisco, AT&T Mobility, Panasonic Automotive, Southern Company, Delta Airlines, The Home Depot, Coca-Cola Enterprises, NCR and ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas.

Georgia Tech served as the project sponsor and anchor tenant and, partnering with Portman Holdings (Atlanta, GA) and Next Tier HD (New York, NY) who designed, constructed, and financed the project and now own, operate and lease to Georgia Tech and commercial companies. The originally 21-story, $355 million project comprises 755,000 SF of space, including 605,000 office, 93,000 data center, 46,000 retail and 600 underground parking spaces. Georgia Tech is leasing about half the space in the building.

Today, with the addition of the new NCR world headquarters development, Tech Square Labs, and CODA (see below), Technology Square totals to over 2 million square feet of private and public space, with $1 billion invested.

Tech Square Phase 3

On October 21, 2022, Georgia Tech broke ground on the site set to become Tech Square Phase 3, a two multi-story tower construction project that is set to add over 400,000 square feet of research and collaboration space to Technology Square. 

One of the towers is set to house the graduate and executive education programs of the Scheller College of Business (also located in Tech Square), while the second will house Georgia Tech's nationally top-ranked school of industrial and systems engineering. The project will also include outdoor and retail space, as well as onsite parking.

This expansion project is set to be completed in 2026.
