Atlanta: Top Suburban OTP Flexible Office Solutions



Some businesses are evaluating providing flexible office space or coworking solutions in the suburbs to support their employees who would ordinarily be commuting into the city center. While the central business district remains ideal for many reasons including but not limited to the recruitment of top talent, access to plentiful amenities and a professional feeling office, many corporations are wanting to give their employees increased flexibility in how and where they office. While most companies seemingly plan to maintain a presence within the city limits; with employee safety front of mind, many are considering additional suburban flexible solutions or nodes to accommodate those with significant commutes and near-term social distancing protocols.

In Atlanta that means evaluating options OTP (outside the perimeter).  As millennials across the city consider trading the cosmopolitan ITP (inside the perimeter) lifestyle, full of instagramable pop-up bars, chef-inspired restaurants and other amenities for more low-cost suburban options, where vastly lower home prices and best-in-class school districts await, organizations may consider providing more flexibility to work effectively without an hour-plus commute every day.  While long-term effects are impossible to predict at this time, action in response to the current COVID-19 crisis may accelerate these decisions.
