TIER REIT, Inc. (NYSE: TIER) announced today that it has re-entered the Atlanta market with its acquisition of 3354 Peachtree Road, a prime, three-acre land site in the prestigious Buckhead submarket. The acquisition was made through a joint venture with an entity owned by Regent Partners and Batson-Cook Development Company.
The site is currently planned for the development of approximately 560,000 square feet of office space, and is located in a strategic TIER1 submarket, given its urban location along the pedestrian bridge to MARTA’s Buckhead station and its walkability and access to various amenities including dining, retail, high-rise residential and hotels.
