Cox Enterprises has announced plans to build a new 600,000 square foot office complex on its Central Park campus headquarters in Sandy Springs, GA, to house the technology department of its Cox Communications subsidiary.
The department includes the subsidiary’s Atlanta-based IT, Internet and engineering staff. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2010 with occupancy expected in 2012.
“Our company’s growth necessitates the construction of additional facilities,” said Marybeth Leamer, EVP, administration and human resources, Cox Enterprises, in a statement. “This rings especially true for Cox Communications, which is ramping up its operations to soon launch next-generation wireless voice and Internet services.”
The new complex will be built in close proximity to Cox Enterprises’ 16-story headquarters, completed in 2001, and located on a 28.8-acre tract of land known as Central Park, on the east side of Peachtree Dunwoody Road.
Cox Communications’ main facility located nearby at 1400 Lake Hearn Drive in DeKalb County will continue to serve as headquarters for all its non-technology department employees.
