Health Care IT Company Relocates HQ to Peachtree Corners
PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA, Dec. 23, 2019 – On Friday, Dec. 13, Brightree, a cloud-based health care company, celebrated the opening of its new 60,500 square-foot headquarters in Peachtree Corners’ Technology Park Atlanta.
The 1970s-era three-story office building, formerly occupied by Honeywell, Inc., was completely renovated and now features open-layout work areas, gathering spaces and an outdoor amenity space for its 160-employee work force and guests.
“When considering a new location for our headquarters, we were won over by the vibrant technology community of Peachtree Corners,” said Matt Mellott, CEO of Brightree. “The recently opened Curiosity Lab, in particular, has generated a powerful synergy that speaks to the collaborative values of the companies and people here. We are thrilled to be part of the Peachtree Corners business community and believe this will play a significant role in our next chapter of growth and innovation.”
The newly opened Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners, an autonomous vehicle and smart-city laboratory, was created as an economic development initiative and designed to further develop Technology Park Atlanta into a technology-focused hub.
“The decision to build Curiosity Lab is already paying dividends,” said City Manager Brian Johnson. “Brightree’s choice to be near Curiosity Lab further confirms that the city’s efforts in creating this living laboratory has been successful.
“Curiosity Lab has already had an impact by attracting a company that brought 160 new jobs to our city. Another company, ASHRA, will bring over 120 jobs when it relocates in the fall. ASHRAE’s decision to move into Technology Park was also influenced by Curiosity Lab. We are expecting more business to follow suit,’ said Johnson.
The city’s newest initiative, Curiosity Lab is part of the efforts to re-imagine Technology Park Atlanta into an innovation hub which incorporates collaborative spaces, multi-use trails, startup and accelerator incubators, nearby housing opportunities for the millennial-age work force, pocket parks and other community gathering spaces.
“We are happy to welcome Brightree,” said Mayor Mason during the ribbon-cutting event at which over 200 attended. “Technology Park Atlanta has become a thriving center that attracts technology-based businesses. Brightree’s relocation here is further proof that Technology Park is becoming the innovative hub we imagined just five years ago.”
Brightree’s grand opening capped off a year that has brought in a number of new businesses that have purchased or leased space in Peachtree Corners’ 500-acre Technology Park Atlanta.
