According to an article written in the Atlanta Business Journal, Georgia Tech is buying a portion of the Lockheed Martin facilities in Cobb County, where the school can expand research and education, eventually adding up to 500 jobs.
Georgia Tech entered a contract with Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) involving four buildings and 52 acres on the aerospace giant’s south campus in Marietta. As a leading technological university, Georgia Tech has more than 100 centers focused on interdisciplinary research that consistently contribute vital research and innovation to American government, industry, and business.
Equipped with the extremely rich resources of an outstanding student body and faculty; strong partnerships with business, industry, and government; and support from alumni and friends, Georgia Tech is designing a future of global preeminence, leadership, and service.
The new jobs that will be created will be a huge boost for this area that is expanding rapidly with the new Suntrust Stadium, Home of the Atlanta Braves is slated to open prior to the first season of 2017. Full-season tickets for 2017 at SunTrust Park are available for all Braves fans.
