Gazing across the growing State Farm campus where Dunwoody meets Sandy Springs, it’s hard to believe that so much space was still available for development—directly neighboring mass transit—in a car-choked metropolis such as this.
State Farm’s nerve center for corporate operations in the Southeast, as this latest installment of Visual Journeys illustrates, is capitalizing on direct MARTA connectivity in a significant way.
The transit link could be positive for Atlantans not employed by the insurance company, too. Consider that, when a proposed third tower is finished in coming years, more than 8,000 workers are expected to be trying to get here each day.
If all of them were driving alone, as most metro Atlanta vehicle commuters do, they would fill every parking space—on-street and below—at Atlantic Station.
Work launched last year on the second piece of State Farm’s Park Center, a glassy, 22-story tower designed by Cooper Carry. It’s expected to finish in 2020, joining the phase one tower in service now next to the Dunwoody MARTA Station.
