ATLANTA | Aerotropolis Development | U/C

Aerotropolis Development at Atlanta Hartsfield




hok.com


Aerotropolis Atlanta is a mixed-use development zoned for 6.5 million square feet of Class-A office, hotel, conference center, retail, data center, business park, and the parking facility. The former 2.8 million square foot production facility for the Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable will have a global focus to capitalize on Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s future international terminal. It promises to be the touchstone for Atlanta’s Southside that Atlantic Station has been for Midtown Atlanta.

The site, purchased from Ford on June 11, 2008, is less than one mile from the new Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Terminal, expected to be completed in 2013-15. And the development’s proposed, partially covered 4,000-space parking lot will be one of the closest parking locations to the new International Terminal, expected to serve more than 13 million passengers within seven years.

Porsche USA at Aerotropolis:










Quote:
May 12, 2011

Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) today announced it will build a new headquarters in Atlanta, the city it has called home for thirteen years. The new complex will be located in the “Aerotropolis Atlanta” development site, near the brand new International Terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It will be comprised of modern office facilities for a workforce that will eventually number 400 employees, including a Technical Service and Training Center, as well as a leading-edge Customer Experience Center that will feature a handling road course to show-off the capabilities of Porsche’s industry-leading vehicles. Groundbreaking is planned for this fall with the move-in date scheduled for the second half of 2013.

“The unparalleled nature of the Porsche ownership experience absolutely deserves an equally unique home. That is what we’ll create with our new headquarters – a concept completely new to the U.S. automotive industry, and one that delivers our brand and product experience to our employees, dealers and customers alike,” said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America.

“Our new American headquarters will allow us to finally bring together all our major sales, after sales and financial services capacities, thus making us an even stronger organization. It also sends a strong message to our dealers and our customers that we believe in the strength of the U.S. market and its future growth,” von Platen explained. “At the same time, this decision demonstrates our commitment to the State of Georgia and the City of Atlanta to remain a vital part of this vibrant region.”

The decision to stay in Atlanta was the result of a thorough, more than one-year long search and evaluation process that spanned metropolitan Atlanta and several out-of-state sites. The new headquarters will not only be home to PCNA, but also to Porsche Financial Services, Inc., and Porsche Business Services, Inc. which are both currently located in Lisle, Illinois. Other Porsche businesses will also be included, building a solid foundation for further expansion of Porsche’s largest market worldwide.

Yes, Porsche USA just signed onto locating their headquaters at Aerotropolis and the dirt's flying right now. Since it's being developed in parcels, certain things like hotels may wait a year but there's plenty going up!

To the west and north of the Hartfield-Jackson International Airport, there currently exists the Georgia International Convention Centre, the Delta Airlines World Headquarters, a Sheraton, a Westin, 2 Marriotts, a Hilton Garden Inn, a Comfort Inn, a Crowne Plaza, a Doubletree, and a Hilton. In Atlanta's new Aerotropolis, there are 10 parcels to build on, and a parking lot in the runway clearance zone.

Airport Cities Are Hot- How is Atlanta's Coming Along?


[A rendering of HOK's design for the new Porsche North America headquarters, to be built as part of the Jacoby Group's Aerotropolis development near Hartsfield Jackson International Airport in Hapeville. Image credit HOK via PRWeb.]

With all of the attention focused on the debut of the new Maynard H. Jackson International Terminal at Hartsfield (and to a lesser extent, related scandals) there hasn't been much news on another new, much bigger project planned for the vicinity of the airport. We refer, of course, to Aerotropolis- the bold vision The Jacoby Group has for the shuttered Ford assembly plant in Hapeville. Apparently Atlanta is not alone in making plans to build a mini-city around its airport, as evidenced by the headline of this piece from the Engineering News-Record: "Aviation-Based Development Emerging as Trend in Planning." The article focuses on Denver's plans for its airport city, but the timing was interesting in light of last week's news that Porsche and the City of Atlanta are closer to a final deal on the relocation of the German automaker's North American headquarters to Aerotropolis. In addition, given the merger of Porsche and Volkswagen currently in process, there is now talk that VW could also relocate there.

UPDATE: Porsche’s new headquarters, test track, costing $466 Million more than expected

Luxury automobile manufacture files permit applications to construct new facility near Hartsfield-Jackson totaling $566 Million.



Quote:
Porsche Cars North America is moving forward with plans to relocate its Sandy Springs headquarters of 13 years to Jacoby Development Inc.’s Aerotropolis Atlanta, the nearly 130-acre mixed-used redevelopment of a Ford Motor Co. assembly plant that stood in Hapeville for almost 60 years.

Porsche filed two building permit applications with City of Atlanta Tuesday to begin construction on its new headquarters, training facility and test track.

Porsche’s U.S. headquarters compound will consist of a “three level below grade parking structure with 650 parking spaces,” an automotive technical training space, fitness area, restaurant and four-story office building, according to the permit.

Porsche will spend an estimated $564,000,000 constructing its 234,000-square-foot headquarters. An additional $2,100,000 will be spent to construct the luxury automobile’s “driving experience and track,” according to a second permit application.

Porsche originally announced it would only spend an estimated $100 Million on the project.

A new destination is born: Porsche breaks ground on cutting edge American headquarters

Posted by: porschebahn | November 28, 2012

America celebrated a landmark groundbreaking

Stuttgart/Atlanta. Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of Porsche sports cars, Cayenne SUVs and the Panamera four-door sports sedan, today celebrated a landmark groundbreaking of its new headquarters, to be known as One Porsche Drive. Located adjacent to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the 26.4-acre site is the first complex to be built in the “Aerotroplis Atlanta” business district.

Employees from Porsche Cars North America and its affiliates Porsche Financial Services, Porsche Business Services, and Porsche Consulting attended the event alongside executives from Porsche Group companies in North America and Germany, as well as local dignitaries. Most of Porsche’s North American operations will be consolidated under one roof once the new facility is finished in the second half of 2014.

“Porsche’s presence has been embraced by Atlanta and the state of Georgia for the last 14 years,” said Matthias Mueller, President and CEO of Porsche AG. “We’re happy to reciprocate the sentiment with this new facility, which contributes to the state’s economic development and also adds a bit of glamor to the local community.”

Mueller also reminded the audience of the lasting love affair of the Americans with Porsche, which goes back to the early fifties and is a powerful incentive for the company to safeguard and nurture this extraordinary relationship. “Our investment here in Atlanta is a testament to our belief in the future of this great nation and, above all, our confidence in this very important market,” he said.

Together with Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Porsche AG, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG, Detlev von Platen, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America, Matthias Mueller celebrated the landmark groundbreaking for this project.

Ultimately, One Porsche Drive will house 400 employees, including 100 jobs that will be new to Georgia. In addition to corporate offices, it will also be comprised of a Technical Service and Training Center, a Conference Center and a Museum. As an industry first, the Porsche headquarters campus will feature a Customer Experience Center including a 1.6-mile test track and handling road course to showcase the capabilities of Porsche’s industry-leading vehicles.

“This world-class facility underscores our commitment to customers and dealers in the United States, which remains the single largest market for Porsche vehicles,” said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO, Porsche Cars North America. “Today’s ceremony also symbolizes Porsche putting down permanent roots here in Atlanta, a city we have proudly called home since 1998.”
