Trashing Up Perimeter

Well, at least trash-canning up Perimeter. Newell Rubbermaid is coming.

Two Glenlake will be the corporate headquarters for Newell Rubbermaid. The company is a household name for commercial and consumer products such as Rubbermaid trash cans and Sharpie pens. The company will take the entire 14-story building near the intersection of Ga. 400 and Abernathy Road in the Perimeter Center area. The building encompasses 370,000 square feet and will be served by an adjacent seven-story parking structure with space for 1,200 vehicles. Greenstone Properties is developing the building in partnership with Pope & Land and Granite Properties, according to Newell Rubbermaid. The design architect of the curvilinear glass structure was Pickard Chilton of New Haven, Conn. Wakefield Beasley and Associates of Norcross is the architect of record. Brasfield & Gorrie is the general contractor.

    That area is messed up already with traffic. The surface streets cannot handle the current volume. Lunchtime rushes to perimeter and area shops are a nightmare. Years ago HP nixed a plan to build another tower in the area due to the influx of traffic it would create. I understand consolidating business in one location, but this location is not good.
