Launch Interactive to Move Office to Flatiron Building
In January 2016 Launch (launchjourney.com) is moving to the historic Flatiron Building, now known as FlatironCity, in downtown Atlanta. The 118-year-old building, and the oldest skyscraper in Atlanta, is undergoing a $12 million dollar renovation to convert it to a space for technology startups and entrepreneurs. As part of this effort, the building includes a Microsoft Innovation Center--only the second one in the country-- which offers "a comprehensive set of technology, tools and resources to startups, government, students and faculty."
Launch is excited to be a part of a city-wide initiative to support technology startups and encourage those businesses to remain in Atlanta, making Atlanta the technology hub of the Southeast. FlatironCity joins others such as the Atlanta Tech Village in supporting entrepreneurs by offering high-end technology resources and work space ranging from one desk to a whole floor.
"We're looking forward to moving to FlatironCity where we'll be a part of a vibrant community of entrepreneurs and innovators," says David Preiss, co-founder of Launch.
Designed by Bradford Gilbert, the Flatiron Building predates its New York City counterpart by 5 years. The 11-story building located on Peachtree Street near Woodruff Park was completed in 1897 and is Atlanta's second and oldest standing skyscraper. It is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Launch will officially move into the building on January 4, 2016 and occupy the entire 9th floor in April, 2016.
