Cisco expected to announce major expansion in Atlanta

Technology firm Cisco Systems is set to announce a major expansion in Atlanta.

Gov. Brian Kemp’s office scheduled a press conference on Wednesday to announce the details of the project, which has been in the works for months.

Cisco is expected to set up shop at Coda at Midtown’s Technology Square, a $375 million office tower for Georgia Tech researchers and their corporate partners.

Once the site of dreary parking lots 15 years ago, Coda tenants include software maker Keysight Technologies, WeWork flexible office space and one of the largest data centers in the Southeast.

The announcement would give another boost to the city’s office market, which is showing new signs of life after a long dormant period during the pandemic. Tenants took or renewed 2.1 million square feet of office space for the three months ending Sept. 30, the highest level since December 2019.
