About Coda


The idea for Coda originated more than a decade ago as a sophisticated computing center for modeling, data analytics, and other research. By the mid-1990s, Georgia Tech University was out of space and on an island, locked on the Westside by the connector and railroad tracks. Momentum for the project began in 2006 when renovations to the Fifth Street Bridge were completed. Originally known as the High-Performance Computing Center, GA Tech looked for a developer who could enhance the dynamic environment already present at Tech Square and create a project that embodied the goals of an innovation ecosystem.


Tech Square is an 8-block innovation district and has become the center of gravity for several tech firms, including the headquarters of NCR and Norfolk Southern, the technology headquarters for Anthem, Inc., and a number of innovation labs from companies such as AT&T, Georgia Power, and Home Depot. To truly realize the synergy potential between the public and private spheres, GA Tech is the anchor tenant and the remaining office space is leased to firms who desire proximity to GA Tech’s top talent and are focused on technology or innovation advancements within their organizations.


Located at 756 West Peachtree in Midtown Atlanta, Coda sits on a full city block parcel, in Technology Square, and is bordered by Armstead Place and 4th Street to the North and South, and Spring Street and West Peachtree to the West and East. The development is adjacent to Georgia Institute of Technology’s (GA Tech) Scheller College of Business and three blocks from the North Avenue MARTA station. The urban streetscape and ground-floor retail space are an extension of the highly energetic “main street” feel of Technology Square. Designed to inspire, the building facilitates a sustainable, innovative ecosystem that integrates the existing assets of the area with new opportunities in interdisciplinary research, economic development, commercialization, and sustainability. Green features include waste heat recovery, rainwater harvesting, and a smart grid for utility infrastructure.


Coda’s campus is home to leading technology corporations, ground floor retail and dining amenities and the 80,000 square foot data center, DataBank. The data center is one of the largest in the Southeast. It includes network availability to multiple top-tier, dark fiber providers with redundant backbone connectivity, cross connects to on-premises carriers, connectivity to public cloud providers, and peering fabric and blended-bandwidth solutions to meet any business requirement.

Orchestrated for Innovation


Coda Tech Square is the premier mixed-use, Class T development in the United States. A total of 770,000 square feet, Coda contains 650,000 square feet of office space, a 9.6 MW data center, 25,000 square feet of retail, and 20,000 square feet of outdoor public space. The building features a 17-story spiral staircase, currently the world’s tallest, that connects tenants via a 35,000 square feet collaborative core of open space designed to act as an idea incubator.

The theme of Coda’s development is to create a deliberate environment for collaboration. Coda’s achieves this through the innovative concept of the Collaborative Core, a 17-story, 35,000 square feet atrium connected by the world’s tallest spiral staircase. Floors 5 through 21 feature open lounges designed to connect academic and industry tenants out of the suites to exchange ideas. Coda was designed from the ground up with collaboration among many in mind. This design element activates and enhances the innovation ecosystem.
