GMA New Headquarters and Renovation Project
On February 1st of 2019, the The Georgia Municipal Association, Inc. (GMA) began soliciting proposals from firms interested in providing professional architectural services for the construction of a project known as the Georgia Municipal Association New Headquarters and Renovation Project, located in Atlanta, Georgia, consisting of a new building, a parking deck, and a renovation of an existing building. New South Construction broke ground on new downtown Atlanta headquarters at the top of 2020. Truist financed the project.
On Monday, January 27, 2020, the GMA held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new four-story, 27,000-square-foot building. The building brings GMA much needed additional office space, and will include a five-story, 146-space parking deck to directly connect three (3) floors of the building. The new building will include a first-floor conference room for GMA Board meetings and other functions for a capacity of 140 people. The fourth floor of the building will feature a roof-top terrace large enough to accommodate up to 200 people for special events. The existing 24,000-square-foot building, The Burgess Building, will also be renovated and connected the new building via a beautiful courtyard. The new building is scheduled to deliver in December 2020, however, the pandemic may affect the timeline. Not unlike a bulk of what has happened this year, this project is history-making.
