To clear the way for a needed Centennial Olympic Park expansion, the Metro Atlanta Chamber recently sold their home-base building of 30 years and moved deeper into the heart of downtown.

And by the look of things, they moved on up in the world, both literally and not.

This 75-employee organization of Atlanta boosters unveiled their sleek, modern digs this morning in the 191 Peachtree skyscraper.

The 26,000-square-foot space, designed by Heery, is punctuated by Atlanta-inspired conference rooms — names include “MLK” and “Hip Hop Huddle” — and a locally sourced wooden “ATL” piece by Twochair Studio.

This view-rific new MAC headquarters is perched on the 34th floor of the landmark 50-story tower.

Officials said the tech-savvy offices reflect “our region’s emergence as a digital hub that is cultivating innovation-based companies.”

The MAC’s former digs will soon be demolished. In October, the chamber closed on the sale of this building to the Georgia World Congress Center Authority (GWCCA), who oversees Centennial Olympic Park.
