ATLANTA-Opus South Corp. has relocated its regional headquarters from suburban Alpharetta to the Sovereign building in Buckhead. The development firm’s now solidified executive team will be located a newly leased 14,000 square feet space at 3344 Peachtree St. in Northern Atlanta. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.

“We feel that Buckhead is the heart of the commercial real estate market as it relates to Atlanta and the Southeast,” Brian Linnihan, vice president of sales and finance, tells “If you look at the companies we do business with, including numerous brokerages, they’re all located here and it gives us an opportunity to be closer to the real estate professionals we interact with every day.”

A move to Buckhead has been in the works for the last 12 to 15 months, says Linnihan, about the same time frame that the new executive team for the corporate office was taking shape with the hire of Hunter Barrier, Opus South president and CEO who oversees operations at the Atlanta and five Florida offices. Martin McFarland, VP of the Atlanta office and R. Duane Wood, VP of industrial development were on board with the firm before the remainder of the team was compiled over the last year. That team consists of Linnihan, Kevin Polston, VP of retail development, Anne Marie Solberg, VP general counsel, Howard Zoromsky, senior VP of construction and most recently hired John Bell, VP of multifamily development, Stephanie Lipp, director of retail leasing and Jeff Royce, director of real estate.
