Hines, Cousins to Build $97M Office Building Within Metro Atlanta’s Avalon Mixed-Use Development
ALPHARETTA, GA. — A joint venture between Hines and Cousins Properties will develop 10000 Avalon, a 251,000-square-foot, Class A office building in Alpharetta, a northern suburb of Atlanta. The new building will be the second and final office building within Avalon, a 2.4 million-square-foot mixed-use development. The total development cost for the building is expected to be $97 million. Cousins has a 90 percent ownership interest in the joint venture and Hines has a 10 percent ownership interest. AXIS Reinsurance Co. will anchor the new building, occupying 76,000 square feet. Sam Holmes of CBRE arranged the 15-year lease on behalf of the insurance company, which is a subsidiary of AXIS Capital Holdings Ltd. Hines and Cousins will start construction on 10000 Avalon this month, with initial occupancy scheduled for early 2020. The building is located adjacent to 8000 Avalon, which Hines and Cousins delivered in June 2017. The building is currently 98 percent leased to tenants such as SAP, Microsoft and coworking operator Spaces.
