Salesforce to Expand Regional Headquarters in Atlanta, Adding 600 New Jobs
ATLANTA — Salesforce (NYSE: CRM), a customer relationship software and services provider, is set to expand its regional headquarters in Atlanta.
The company will grow its current footprint in The Atlanta Plaza, located in the city’s Buckhead district, which will now be known as Salesforce Tower Atlanta. The lobby, and each new floor set for occupancy by the company, will be renovated as part of the expansion.
Salesforce currently occupies four floors of The Atlanta Plaza totaling 85,722 square feet. Following the expansion, the company will occupy seven floors and 158,163 square feet.
The top floor of the building will also be transformed into an, “Ohana Floor,” which will offer an open hospitality space for Salesforce employees, customers and partners. The space will also be available for use by nonprofits and local education groups on weeknights and weekends at no cost.
The expansion will allow the company to nearly double its Atlanta-based workforce of approximately 600 employees. Employees will begin moving into the newly renovated floors in 2019.
“Atlanta is a fantastic market for world-class talent and we’re thrilled to grow our presence in the region,” says Warren Wick, executive vice president of commercial sales at Salesforce. “Many of our top customers call the city home and we’re excited to support these trailblazers in connecting with their customers in whole new ways.”
Growing its presence in Atlanta and receiving its name on the building helps expand the international network of Salesforce Towers, which includes Salesforce Tower New York, Salesforce Tower Indianapolis, Salesforce Tower London and the company’s worldwide headquarters, Salesforce Tower San Francisco.
The company’s stock closed on Monday, Oct. 15, at $131.95 per share, up from $97.15 per share one year ago.
