“The market has exhibited strong interest in Coda — the cutting-edge collaborative office and data center under construction in Technology Square,” Portman Director of Leasing Travis Garland said in a statement.
“This new opportunity at 740 West Peachtree will allow us to build on the momentum of Coda as well as the excitement around Midtown.”
Midtown has been hot, particularly for tech firms. NCR is building a new corporate headquarters near Tech Square. Equifax, Sage and Worldpay US are among companies that have expanded in Midtown in recent years.
Developers including Selig and Hines have announced new office projects in the Midtown submarket as office vacancy has tightened.
The Portman proposal will go before a city development review committee on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
Coda, a 21-story tower, is the second phase of the popular Technology Square development. The tower will feature office and research space for Georgia Tech and the private sector. The development will also feature a high-performance data center for sophisticated research and development.
Coda is expected to open in 2019.
