This year our company’s day of service took us to the Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children’s Shelter, where our own Brand Morgan is President of the Executive Board. This inspiring organization has operated in Buford for almost 30 years serving homeless children and their moms. Executive Director Maureen Kornowa explained that the goal of this loving and nurturing environment is to end the cycle of homelessness. Their 3 to 12 month transitional living program provides free room and board with customized life-skill training in budgeting, parenting, resumes, job hunting and more. Children attend local schools while moms use an onsite resource center to find a job and begin work. With time, moms save and learn life skills that allow them and their children to graduate to independent living.
We were happy to decorate inside and outside for Christmas, organize donated articles, and provide gifts for the children from their wish list. If you would like to help with your time, talents and/or financial donations, visit their website here. You can make a difference!
Anchored by Fresh Market and Ace Hardware, this iconic Buckhead property is located at the busy corner of Roswell Road and Wieuca Road. New Market Properties LLC, recently won out over a dozen suitors to acquire ownership of the landmark center from the family who developed and cared for it since 1964. The family’s excellent relationship with Brand Real Estate Services factored into the choice of the new owner so that our leasing and management relationship could continue. This 74,370 square foot center is a familiar Buckhead favorite and we are honored to keep it in our portfolio.

Brand Properties develops 12-story medical office tower
Brand Properties is developing 1.5 acres in Midtown Atlanta into a visionary health care facility for Northside Hospital. Located at West Peachtree and 13th Street, the 12-story, 170,000 square foot medical office tower will house the Northside Hospital Imaging Center, primary care offices, cardiology services, urgent care, and class-A office space for physicians practices. The project will break ground in 2016, with a proposed opening in mid-2018.
Brand Morgan, CEO of Brand Properties, attests “The continued growth of [the Midtown] market is incredible with more than 65,000 workers coming here every weekday and more than 14,000 people choosing to make their home here. Add to that $2.8 billion in planned new development and you have a compelling case for one of the top hospitals in the country to establish a major foothold in Midtown.”
