Last week, members of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) visited EY Atlanta’s office to learn about preparing, negotiating, building and running a build in place project. The comprehensive panel discussion discussed EY Atlanta’s recent space conversion and lease renewal, including best practices and lessons learned and how EY reduced their Atlanta footprint from nearly 150,000 square feet to just over 100,000 square feet while growing headcount. Since piloting their new workplace strategy in Atlanta several years ago, EY has toured over 700 clients, colleagues and guests through the Atlanta space and continue to innovate and explore workplace strategies. Michelle Vaughn, property manager of 55 Allen Plaza, participated in the panel.


Lincoln Property Company Southeast is proud to manage the Class A office building, which was designated as a BOMA 360 Performance Building by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) in October, and was awarded The Outstanding Building of the Year (TOBY) in the 250,000- to 499,999-square-foot category from BOMA of Georgia in February. The TOBY Award, which recognizes building quality and management excellence, is considered the most prestigious and comprehensive program of its kind in the commercial real estate industry.


55 Allen Plaza is a 341,741-square-foot office building located in the Allen Plaza mixed-use development, and is surrounded by amenities including restaurants, the W-Atlanta Downtown Hotel & Residences, growing retail, and Centennial Olympic Park.
