“There is no more ideal tenant for Star Metals than Spaces,” said W. Allen Morris, Chairman and CEO of The Allen Morris Company. “Our intent with Star Metals Offices, from concept forward, was to cater to innovative professionals, along with tech-savvy companies and individuals seeking a superior workplace to recruit and retain Atlanta’s most talented and competitive workforce.”


“The Allen Morris Company and IWG, which owns Spaces and its sister company Regus, have had a relationship for over 14 years. No other shared office company even comes close to IWG in size and scope and depth of Fortune 500 corporate relationships. Spaces offers the most contemporary and creative full service business experience that we are proud to showcase at Star Metals,” added Mr. Morris.


Star Metals is in the epicenter of West Midtown, and will afford its office building tenants, as well as its residential apartment tenants, modern living and work spaces, just footsteps away from Atlanta’s vibrant restaurant scene, high-end shops and everyday conveniences.
