Ge­or­gia Power mov­ing to DLS build­ing

Rome News-Tribune - - NEWS - By Doug Walker DWalker@RN-T.com

Ge­or­gia Power ex­pects to com­plete the re­lo­ca­tion of all per­son­nel from its head­quar­ters build­ing at 800 Broad St. and Turner McCall Boule­vard by the end of the Oc­to­ber. Ge­or­gia Power Re­gional Di­rec­tor Cas­san­dra Wheeler said some of the lo­cal man­age­ment team will be lo­cated in the Dempsey Lord Smith build­ing at 901 N. Broad St., while some of the en­gi­neers and sales and mar­ket­ing per­son­nel would go to Holmes Road in Rome or to Cartersville

Wheeler and the man­age­ment staff will be lo­cated on the third floor of the DLS build­ing that is cur­rently be­ing ren­o­vated.

The old build­ing, which will be com­pletely empty af­ter the last of the Ge­or­gia Power team moves at the end of the month, is be­ing listed for $2.8 mil­lion.

The prop­erty in­cludes ap­prox­i­mately 43,000 square-feet of of­fice space in two con­nected build­ings on just un­der a 1.6 acre lot with 119 park­ing spa­ces on two lev­els that are fully sprin­kled.

Both build­ings have nu­mer­ous of­fice spa­ces along with a 2,600 square­foot au­di­to­rium or train­ing room. Both of the build­ings are equipped with el­e­va­tors.

“When we closed the busi­ness of­fice just had too much space to house the num­ber of em­ploy­ees who were still there,” Wheeler said. We just don’t need as much space.”

The build­ing was con­structed in the mid 1980s. Be­fore mov­ing into that fa­cil­ity, many of the lo­cal man­age­ment ex­ec­u­tives with Ge­or­gia Power were housed in what is now the Synovus build­ing on Broad.

Floyd County Tax Com­mis­sioner Kevin Payne said he has no as­sess­ment in­for­ma­tion or deed his­tory on the build­ing at 800 Broad St., since it is lumped to­gether with all of the other Ge­or­gia Power prop­erty in Floyd County for tax pur­poses.
