IATSE Atlanta Center Updates


As of October most of the IA locals with a presence in Atlanta are materially using our building in some form, fulfilling early goals to make the building a collaborative hub for Georgia’s motion picture locals.

In mid-Summer New York Local 798 (Makeup Artists & Hair Stylists) leased a single office to provide its members working in Georgia with a physical location where they can meet with their newly appointed Georgia Field Rep, Samantha Reese.

Local 927 (Atlanta Stage Technicians) will be leasing space in the building at some point this year.

RTS Associates, a fiber optic installation specialist, became a tenant this past April, moving into 5,000 square feet of the eastern wing of the building. The income from tenants goes into the building fund, which is used for expenses associated with all properties owned by the local.

This summer the parking lot was repaved and the main entrance was enhanced and landscaped to accommodate easier access.

Local 479 is looking to expand the Education Department into unoccupied space in the building, our plans include adding classrooms and more workshop space to increase the number of classes we can hold at one time.
