Hartman Simons Represents Ardent In Kaiser Permanente Buckhead Lease
Hartman Simons’ Ruth Hughes represented The Ardent Companies in drafting and negotiating the lease agreement that will keep Kaiser Permanente in Buckhead’s Piedmont Center office park. This is the first big office deal for Atlanta’s commercial real estate market in 2018.
Kaiser, a tenant at Piedmont Center since 1994, will continue to occupy space at Piedmont Center. Although Kaiser has consolidated their space from 200k SF to 185k SF, they will continue to operate out of Buildings 9 and 10. The property is located on Piedmont Road between Peachtree and Roswell roads near the Buckhead Loop and Georgia 400. Kaiser occupies almost one third of the 550,000 SF of Ardent’s part of Piedmont Center.
“This has been the home of our regional headquarters since 1994, and we’re pleased with its location, amenities, and easy access to public transportation,” a Kaiser Permanente spokesperson stated in an email.
Kaiser is one of the state’s largest healthcare insurance providers, serving the Atlanta’s healthcare needs for 30 years. Kaiser has more than 300,000 members, 3,100 employees, 542 physicians and 26 medical office locations.
