Norfolk Southern Opens New Headquarters Building In Atlanta

Norfolk Southern Corporation today formally opened its state-of-the-art headquarters in Midtown Atlanta following a ribbon-cutting ceremony that featured Governor Brian P. Kemp, Senator Raphael Warnock, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Norfolk Southern employees, and civic and business leaders from across Atlanta.

When Norfolk & Western merged with Southern Railway in 1982 to form Norfolk Southern, the headquarters was located in Norfolk, Virginia, while the company’s operations and technology leadership was located in Atlanta.

Norfolk Southern plays a critical role driving the U.S. economy, providing freight transportation for industrial, agriculture, energy, consumer products, e-commerce, and more. The company employs 19,000 employees across its footprint, of which 3,000 will call the new headquarters home. The building enhances the company’s presence in Georgia, which dates to the mid-1840’s.

The 750,000-square-foot building rests on a 3.4-acre campus in Tech Square – a nexus of talent and innovation. For Norfolk Southern, sustainability and employee health and wellness were front and center in designing this new space. The company’s new headquarters is built to LEED version 4 specifications and aims to one of the first LEED Gold certified office buildings in Georgia. The building features:

  • Two modern architecture glass towers with a connecting campus-style hub
  • Touchless technology from top to bottom
  • Open workspaces, street-level plazas, and rooftop terraces
  • Employee amenities, including a restaurant-like food hall, 24/7 fitness center, on-site daycare, a coffee shop, art installations, and an artist in residence studio
