Airbnb Atlanta office location announcement

The company said it chose an office site in the Marietta Street Artery neighborhood west of Midtown.

ATLANTA – Airbnb identified Thursday where they project to open a technology center in Atlanta and said the new office will likely open later this year.

The short-term rental platform originally announced his plans for an office in Atlanta last year.

They said Thursday they have now chosen a location for the office in the Marietta Street Artery neighborhood of Atlanta, at the corner of 14th Street and Howell Mill Road. The area of ​​mixed-use developments for shops, housing and restaurants along Howell Mill is also frequently referred to as West Midtown.

The company said the space is affiliated with Georgia Tech.

“From its West Midtown offices affiliated with the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Atlanta Tech Hub will create new, highly skilled technical and non-technical roles, building on our commitment and investments in the city,” a statement read.

The company described the office space in its release.

“The space is in the mixed-use Interlock Complex and is managed by Georgia Advanced Technology Ventures (GATV), an affiliate of the Georgia Institute of Technology,” the statement said. “GATV is acquiring and developing properties near campus that serve both Georgia Tech’s academic needs and those of technology companies interested in harnessing its research innovations and student talent.”

Airbnb’s plan is to open the office later in 2022, “subject to pandemic conditions.”

“With the opening of our Atlanta Tech Hub, we hope to create many new, high-skilled jobs over time and expand our commitment to serving all stakeholders in Airbnb’s diverse community: hosts, guests, communities, employees and shareholders,” Dave Stephenson, Airbnb’s chief financial officer, said in a statement. “Atlanta emerged as the perfect choice for our new Tech Hub because of its strong educational infrastructure and institutions committed to supporting communities of color.”

Mayor Andre Dickens also added in a statement, “Atlanta is and always will be open for business, innovation and attracting talent. This investment is a vote of confidence in the strength of our tech industry and talent.” We are home to Airbnb’s new technology hub and I look forward to working together to create a pipeline of tech jobs and economic opportunities for our residents.
