Five Reasons We Love Our South Buckhead Location


by Savannah Duncan

The Wilbert Group’s new suite sign at the Peachtree 25th building.

When it comes to office space, location is key. While there are many options in downtown and Midtown, South Buckhead perfectly suits The Wilbert Group for many reasons.

#1 Central location. We are centrally located for many of our clients, which makes meeting in person that much easier. Cooper Carry is located downtown, Carter’s office is at Atlantic Station and our newest client, Franklin Street, is in the heart of Buckhead.

#2 New office space. Our new office space is modern, open and has allowed for a more collaborative work environment. It’s also the perfect size to allow for our company to continue to grow.  We love it and have received many compliments on it!

#3 Our landlord. Atlanta Property Group is both the landlord of our building, Peachtree 25th, as well as a Wilbert client. They have a management and leasing office in the lobby, which makes them very accessible. Additionally, they provide excellent amenities, such as 24-hour security, a café, fitness center and conference rooms.

#4 Peachtree address. Since Peachtree is undoubtedly the most iconic street in Atlanta, having a Peachtree address is a really cool perk of our office location.

#5 Upcoming burrito wars. Bell Street Burritos is currently renovating the old Huey’s space (a stone’s throw from our office building), and Chipotle is taking the previous Fig Jam space across the street from us. Let the battle of the burritos begin!
