MetLife selects JLL as development manager for midtown Atlanta property

Planning and design underway for strategically located gateway site

​Atlanta, Ga. June 13, 2016 - MetLife Inc. has engaged real estate services firm JLL to serve as a master development manager for its eight and a half acre Midtown Heights property in midtown Atlanta.

In this role, JLL will work closely with MetLife to plan, design and develop a new mixed-use, transit-oriented project at the site, which MetLife began assembling in 2006.

MetLife and JLL have begun planning and concepting design for the new project, with development expected to be phased over 10 years. The companies are studying potential uses and will set direction and timing over the coming year.

A gateway site to midtown Atlanta, Midtown Heights is located at the corner of Spring and 17th streets, across the interstate from Atlantic Station. With easy access to the interstates and mass transit including the Arts Center MARTA station, the property is well positioned for a vibrant, transit-oriented development that will engage and excite the area’s residents and tenants.
