NCR Corporation opened its new global headquarters campus in Midtown Atlanta. The two-tower campus will provide the space needed to prepare for future growth and create innovations that will help power the digitally-connected economy.
In total, NCR’s new headquarters will be home to approximately 5,000 skilled professionals. The state-of-the-art campus will be roughly 750,000 square feet of space, comprised of two office towers situated at the corner of 8th and Spring Streets in the heart of burgeoning Midtown Atlanta. Employees will begin moving into the first tower today, with the second tower opening later this year.
“I am pleased that NCR has chosen the City of Atlanta for its new headquarters, and this major capital investment that will bring over 5,000 skilled jobs to Midtown,” said Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. “Atlanta is a global technology center that offers companies access to top talent, renowned research institutions and advanced technology infrastructure. I look forward to working with Mr. Nuti and everyone at NCR as we continue to strengthen Atlanta’s role as a premier global tech and innovation hub. The opening of NCR’s new corporate campus represents another major step towards that goal.”
Construction of the first tower began in November 2015. In September 2016, NCR announced it would expand the campus and build a second tower. NCR partnered with Invest Atlanta and the Georgia Department of Economic Development on development of the campus to create $450 million of public and private investment in Midtown Atlanta.
“This Campus symbolizes the power of reinvention. It celebrates the innovators, dreamers, and problem-solvers who walk through our doors every day and have the courage to build a better tomorrow,” said NCR Chairman and CEO Bill Nuti. “Our move to Midtown is part of our vision for transforming Atlanta into the Silicon Valley of the East.”
The global headquarters will enable optimal collaboration and teamwork; feature the technology and tools to support the changing nature of how, when and where work is done; and excite and inspire employees and customers. The campus will feature such amenities as dining options and outdoor seating, coffee bar, gym, informal spaces that spark creativity, and a large lecture space. It will become the permanent home for the NCR Innovation Lab and continue the already robust partnership between NCR and Georgia Tech, as the organizations are now located side-by-side in the center of Atlanta’s Technology Square.
