MetLife Investment Management (MIM), MetLife Inc.’s (NYSE: MET) institutional asset management business, and Granite Properties, a commercial real estate investment, development and management company, today announced the topping out of Midtown Union’s Class-AA, 26-Story, 612,000 square foot office tower in Midtown Atlanta. Anchored by the future headquarters of Invesco, the building will offer a sustainable and wellness-focused workspace, and is pursuing LEED and Fitwel certifications. 

Midtown Union, a mixed-use development encompassing nearly a full city block, and consisting of three towers (office, residential and a hotel), is designed by Cooper Carry, and developed by three different partnerships. The fully integrated project includes an extension of Arts Center Way creating a new, pedestrian-friendly retail destination in Midtown with shops and restaurants. General contractor Brasfield & Gorrie began constructing the three towers simultaneously in November 2019, for a unified delivery in Q3 2022. Topping out in close procession, the 26-story, 355-unit residential tower, “the Mira at Midtown Union,” reached the milestone in June, and the 14-story, 230-key hotel, to be operated by Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, reached its height in March. 

“Complicated projects often don’t require a complicated solution. They just need great people working hard together, marching down a clearly defined path toward a common goal,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Mike Foushee. “The people on this project have exemplified everything that the word ‘team’ represents. We’re grateful for the partnerships that we share with MetLife, Granite Properties and Cooper Carry, and we look forward to tackling more challenges together in the future.”
