Macy's $14 million tech hub coming to Atlantic Station

The project is expected to create 630 new jobs

ATLANTA — Macy's is opening a new $14 million technology hub in Atlantic Station, while maintaining its current Johns Creek facility. 

The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced Friday that the Fortune 500 company will open the new office at Atlanta’s T3 West Midtown in Atlantic Station to create the innovative technology hub, recently announced as part of the company’s three-year strategic plan.

The $14 million project will create 630 new jobs.

“The Macy’s footprint is historic in Atlanta, and we appreciate the company’s latest investment here in the technology sector,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “The Macy’s Technology location in Johns Creek has clearly made an impact with company leaders, and the high-tech jobs that will be kept there and created in Midtown Atlanta are further evidence that our ever-expanding technology talent is a major asset to the state.”

The majority of the new positions will be centered on software development - including junior and senior-level software engineers - as well as software architects to guide technology strategy, lead design, configuration, and implementation, the company said in a news release.

“The new site in Midtown will further allow Macy’s to leverage the diversity and depth of technical expertise and skills available in the Atlanta area and enable us to exceed our omni-channel customers’ expectations through a seamless shopping experience across our stores, digital properties, and mobile app,” said Naveen Krishna, chief technology officer of Macy’s.

Macy’s Technology will be among the first tenants of the newly constructed $80 million T3 West Midtown building. The Johns Creek campus will remain at its current location on State Bridge Road.

“It is exciting to see another Fortune 500 company coming to Atlanta to establish a major business operations center. We look forward to welcoming Macy’s and providing all the support we can as they grow here,” said Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
