Law Firm Signs 100,000 SF Office Lease at 1420 Peachtree in Midtown Atlanta
ATLANTA — Swift, Currie, McGhee & Hiers LLP, a law firm with offices in Georgia and Alabama, has signed a lease for a 100,000-square-foot office space at 1420 Peachtree St. NE. in Midtown Atlanta. The firm is relocating from The Peachtree Tower at 1355 Peachtree St., where it has operated for more than 30 years.
Tim McCarthy and Ryanne Pennington of JLL represented Swift Currie in the deal, and Chip Roach and Stephen Clifton of Transwestern representing the building’s owner, Franklin Street Properties Corp.
Swift Currie has more than 160 lawyers total and 324 Atlanta-based employees. As the firm has grown over the years, Swift Currie said the reason for its move is to have a bigger office space.
1420 Peachtree is a 160,000-square-foot, Class-A office building. The eight-story building is currently being renovated in order to modernize common areas, improve amenities and upgrade the tenant spaces. The building features walk-out fourth floor balconies.
Located at the intersection of Peachtree and West Peachtree streets, the building is situated a half-mile north of MARTA’s Art Center Station and offers immediate access to the Interstate 75/85 Connector and Ga. Highway 400, as well as Piedmont Park and the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail.
