ATLANTA-Hirsch Bedner Associates has signed a new lease for 25,000 square feet at the Two Peachtree Pointe office building in Midtown. The hotel interior design firm plans to relocate in August from its current space, which is roughly half that size, at 909 W. Peachtree St.

Howard Pharr, the firm’s president, admits to having some short-term concerns expanding in the current jittery economy. However, he believes its worldwide client base, which includes projects in Dubai and London, will allow HBA to grow even in difficult times.

“Consistent marketing efforts and a blue-chip reputation for designing world-class hotels around the globe make HBA a safe bet for owners in good times and bad,” Pharr stated in a release. “The tremendous boom in Atlanta over the past few years has made it one of the bright spots in the US market as well.”

HBA worked with locally based Colliers Spectrum Cauble in considering as many as 25 properties for its larger office, Pharr said. The company, which has operated for nearly half of its 40 years on West Peachtree Street, believes its new Midtown location will provide what he called “the perfect combination of physical opportunities, location and image for our needs.”

Two Peachtree Pointe, owned by Dewberry Capital Corp., is a 12-story, 310,000-square-foot class A office tower at 1555 Peachtree St. Financial terms of the new lease with HBA are being kept confidential.

“Not every firm is contracting,” commented Robert Allen, senior vice president and principal at Colliers Spectrum Cauble. “Many companies are still expanding, and strong, growing tenants like HBA have ample opportunities to explore options for new and existing office space. Actually, there’s no better time for well-positioned companies to examine such options.”
