Parkside Partners, Payscape to Purchase, Renovate Office Building in Midtown Atlanta
ATLANTA — Parkside Partners has formed a joint venture with Payscape, a financial technology firm that provides payment processing software for small to mid-size businesses, to purchase and renovate a 43,430-square-foot office building in Midtown Atlanta. The companies will renovate the two-story asset located at 1438 W. Peachtree St. for Payscape’s new headquarters. Payscape will triple its square footage following its move from its current location at 729 Lambert Drive in Atlanta. The joint venture purchased the property from Lyrasis, which signed a long-term lease prior to the sale for 9,200 square feet of office space at the property. Additionally, AlliedBarton Security Services currently occupies 11,475 square feet in a long-term lease. The asset will be 80 percent leased when Payscape takes occupancy in the fall. MSTSD is the architect of the $8 million renovation, which is expected to wrap up by the first quarter of 2017. The renovations include painting the building’s brick exterior, transforming the office suites to a loft-style design, renovating the lobby, installing skylights on the second floor and landscaping the grounds. Howard Boyd of Hailey Realty represented the joint venture in the purchase, and Iberia Bank provided acquisition financing on behalf of the new ownership. Atlanta-based Parkside Partners will market the available office space.
