ATLANTA (August 31, 2011) – Carter secured nearly 30,000 square feet of new leases at Piedmont West over the past 30 days. Carter’s Senior Vice President Glenn Kolker heads up leasing for the building and served as landlord representative on each transaction.
Internal/family medicine practice Braude, Mermin, Spivey, Malamis & Perry will relocate to a 6,800-square-foot space on the first floor of Piedmont West from its current location at 1109 W. Peachtree St. in Midtown. Peyton Wimberly of Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant.
Piedmont Healthcare will expand its lease on the third floor by 10,000 square feet for legal and administrative offices. John Shlesinger and Steve Barton of CB Richard Ellis represented the tenant.
Van Meter Pediatric Endocrinology leased 5,500 square feet on the fourth floor. Bob Allen of Colliers International represented the tenant.
Georgia Skin Specialists – Dr. Linda Benedict – will relocate from its current location at 3280 Howell Mill Road to the sixth floor of Piedmont West. The dermatology practice will occupy a 5,400-square-foot space. Michael Hubley of Sperry Van Ness represented the tenant.
Piedmont West’s street-level retail space also is filling up. Rising Roll Gourmet, a salad and sandwich shop, just opened a location in the building.
Other building tenants include prominent practice groups such as Atlanta Center for Reproductive Medicine, Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates, Dr. Mark Codner, MD-Plastic Surgery and Jenkins Clinic. Carter developed the mixed-use outpatient facility encompassing 264,000 square feet of medical office and retail space that opened in 2009.
“Medical office continues to be one of the brighter spots in commercial real estate,” said Kolker. “Piedmont West is benefiting from that trend since it is a newer medical office building with state-of-the-art features that today’s physician practices and patients require.”
