ATLANTA (June 16, 2011) – Carter said today Atlantic Southeast Airlines has leased an entire floor at Hartsfield Centre near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
ASA leased 20,440 square feet at Hartsfield Center, an eight-story, 148,621-square-foot building owned by Alecta, a Swedish pension fund. Carter’s Mike Shelly and Sonia Winfield represented Alecta in the transaction. David Andes of Newburger-Andres represented ASA, a regional carrier for Delta and United.
ASA is a subsidiary of SkyWest Airlines. When SkyWest acquired ExpressJet Airlines last year, SkyWest made ExpressJet a subsidiary of ASA. This merger and acquisition created an office space constraint for ASA, which transformed the former Eastern Airlines hangar into its headquarters in 2008.
“ASA was one of Hartsfield Centre’s original tenants and we are delighted to have ASA return to the building,” Carter’s Winfield said. “The building’s location is idea for airlines and -aviation and logistics-related companies.”
ASA is expected to move into Hartsfield Centre in August. With the ASA lease, Hartsfield Centre is 75 percent leased.
