Cousins, the developer of the NCR campus, said the second phase of the project involves a 240,000-square-foot tower that could rise next to to a skyscraper currently under construction at Eighth and Spring streets. It will also include about 10,000 square feet of retail space.


The project is designed by Duda Paine Architects, HKS and Kimley-Horn.The renderings were presented during a Midtown design review committee meeting.

NCR announced plans in early 2015 to move its headquarters from Gwinnett County to Midtown and shift 3,600 workers into the city of Atlanta. The first phase includes a tower of about 20 stories.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last week first reported plans by NCR to both expand the campus near Technology Square, and that company officials also are considering a move that could bring more than 1,000 additional workers to the site.

The two towers will lock into what a representative called an “innovation hall,” a clear glass portion of the campus where NCR’s research and development team would be visible at work from the street.

NCR CEO Bill Nuti has said the intown shift is designed to help the company tap student and faculty talent at Georgia Tech. He has said he wants Tech students to see employees at work in the building as a recruiting tool.

The Fortune 500 maker of software, automated tellers and other self-serve kiosks has declined to comment on its plans.

A Cousins executive who presented the renderings to the board declined to comment after the meeting.

In six years the building will be empty and NCR will have found another sucker to give them free taxes for a few years.  Reed is Mr Corporate Welfare!  


NCR moved from Dayton to Duluth in 2010 and is now moving to Atlanta City. They are playing the city incentives game. Look for them to move again before the building lease expires.


@BurroughstonBroch Unless the Tech Square area flounders. There are other big projects on the drawing board for that area
