Brookhaven, GA – Brookhaven city officials are reviewing an application from Highwoods Properties to annex Century Center into the city.
Last week, the North Carolina-based corporation filed an application to annex about 120 acres into Brookhaven. The property, which is located in unincorporated DeKalb County, is bound by Clairmont Road, Century Boulevard, Century Parkway and Interstate 85 South.
The community development department is currently reviewing the application.
“We are doing our due diligence to ensure that the application is complete and that the annexation is in the best interest of the City of Brookhaven,” City Manager Marie L. Garrett said.
The property owners decided to petition Brookhaven for annexation based on the quality of the services available, according to Jim Bacchetta vice president of Highwoods Atlanta Division.
The application will be reviewed by Brookhaven and must be approved by the Brookhaven City Council.
Century Center is home to the Atlanta Marriott Century Center and several General Services Administration agencies, including the FBI, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as other commercial tenants.
