Defoor Hills


Defoor Hills is an adaptive reuse, creative office located in Atlanta, which is 100% leased to three tenants with a weighted remaining lease term of 11 years. The property is located in the West Midtown submarket of downtown Atlanta, whose growth is being driven by creative and technology tenants and a live/work/play environment.

Originally a warehouse built in the 1970’s, the property was recently redeveloped into a modern office, featuring open truss ceilings with exposed steel beams, oversized windows, reclaimed wood, and concrete floors. Defoor Hills is a prime example of creative office space. Creative office spaces appeal to companies who are seeking a differentiated means of recruiting talent, particularly younger professionals, in a competitive marketplace. Through their physical space companies have the ability to project their brand authenticity in a manner that is either unavailable or too expensive in a conventional office. In addition, Defoor Hills is located in an emerging submarket of Atlanta, which continues to draw TAMI and STEM talent from Georgia Tech.

The way people work has changed and modern workspace needs to reflect that. Between its creative buildout and its emerging location, this property is well suited to meet the demands of tomorrow’s world.
