The growing company will lease 86,000 square feet of office space, with an option to expand up to 112,000 square feet. "We're so excited to create a beautiful space for this leading Atlanta-based company," said Morgan Dene Oliver, chief executive officer of San Diego-based developer OliverMcMillan.
�Spanx�s innovative spirit and sense of fashion fit perfectly with the fabric of Buckhead Atlanta.� �Like the Spanx brand, the Buckhead Atlanta space is innovative and unique,� said Spanx Founder Sara Blakely. �It�s a perfect fit�no pun intended! We�re also thrilled to offer hometown fans a way to experience the magic of Spanx at our first flagshape store.� Herm�s, the French high-fashion design house, will be one of the first of many upscale retailers to open at Buckhead Atlanta.
