ATLANTA — Developer Cousins Properties has tapped Pickard Chilton to design Norfolk Southern’s 1 million-square-foot headquarters in Midtown Atlanta. The railroad company announced in December that it is relocating its headquarters from Norfolk, Va. Norfolk Southern will combine employees from Virginia, Atlanta and its nine divisions across the Southeast to work in the new space, which will be located at 650 W. Peachtree St. in Atlanta’s Technology Square district. The building is expected to be delivered in the third quarter of 2021. Amenities will include a dining facility, rooftop garden, fitness center, conference space, child care and a private greenspace. New Haven, Conn.-based Pickard Chilton has designed more than 6.7 million square feet of commercial space for prominent developers in downtown Atlanta over the past 20 years.
