Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) recently held the official grand opening of its sleek, modern, glass headquarters in Sandy Springs. On hand were dignitaries from state and local governments as well as parent company Daimler executives. The new 200,000-square-foot building is situated on a 12-acre campus near Georgia 400, about 14 miles north of downtown Atlanta. As expected, it features first-class amenities, including collaborative workspaces, a restaurant-quality café serving locally sourced foods, a 5,000 square-foot fitness center complete with trainers, an on-site child care facility with an outdoor playground and a furnished roof deck for outdoor meetings.
The headquarters is also environmentally friendly with drip irrigation to reduce water consumption and energy efficient mechanical systems. To eliminate food waste, MBUSA is partnering with Second Helpings Atlanta, which delivers surplus food from area organizations to those who need it. And, to further support the company’s commitment to sustainability, MBUSA is implementing alternative transportation initiatives that include a dedicated MARTA shuttle for employees, flex scheduling to reduce traffic impact, electric vehicle charging stations and bike racks.
