Mercedes-Benz USA breaks ground on new Sandy Springs headquarters


The governor and two mayors joined in the groundbreaking for Mercedes-Benz USA’s new corporate headquarters in Sandy Springs on Sept. 26.

The luxury auto-maker is relocating from New Jersey and is temporarily headquartered in Dunwoody’s Sterling Pointe office center. Its new, 200,000-square-foot headquarters at 6480 Barfield Road is expected to open in early 2018.

The company’s new 12-acre campus in Sandy Springs is on land that was formerly part of the historic Glenridge Hall estate. It is part of a larger housing and retail development by Ashton Woods that sparked intense controversy last year about density and the loss of woodland and Glenridge Hall.

Mercedes-Benz USA says it has partnered with Trees Atlanta on construction and has removed and donated some viable trees rather than cutting them down.
