We Care!

Lots of hard work, play and joy went into the planning of our team's participation in this year's We Care event, sponsored by Herman Miller.  Becky Williams always does an amazing job of rallying the troops with dedication and enthusiasm.  Special thanks to our slime queens - Cara, Asia, Ali, Caitlin and Safira - and to our event team - Becky, Caitlin, Carmen, Asia, Christie and Sam.  The kids absolutely loved it!  Way to go!  

All is merry and bright!

HLGstudio kicked off our annual holiday celebration with a champagne toast and red velvet cupcakes, followed by some mischief at The Painted Pin.  This year's Arch Award winners are Sabrina Tate, Becky Williams, Beth Woods, Christie Brantley, Sam Farra, Caitlin Matonak and Susan James.   Not surprisingly, Sam also pulled out a win for the Tacky Sweater contest - although, Steve Hart sure gave him a run for his money!  You'll have to ask him to see the photos...  We wish everyone a happy, healthy and joyous holiday season!


We're growing!

HLGstudio recently completed an office expansion in Promenade to accommodate our growing family.  Many thanks for the support of Cushman & Wakefield, our vendor partners and Leapley Construction for helping make the project a success!  Maharam, OFS Brands, Solution Associates, RS Reps, Tandus, Mannington, MDC Wallcovering, CWC, Herman Miller, Clarus, Human Scale

Welcome to the world!

Luke William Mathis made his debut on Thursday, September 21st, weighing in at 8 lbs, 3 oz and 21.5" long.  Proud parents Whitney and Tyler are beyond excited, welcoming him with love and joy.  Super bonus that they made it home just in time to watch Georgia win on Saturday!  GO DAWGS! 

Note:  that last remark is not endorsed by HLGstudio.  We have Bulldogs, Lions, Tigers, Gators, Yellow Jackets, Sooners, etc. as part of our staff...  but this blogger is taking creative license and contends that Whitney roots for the right team!

CoreNet Global Atlanta Chapter - "Adapting to Densification"

Roger participated in a conversation regarding the impact density is having on the world of commercial real estate.  Kim Rousseau led the discussion with other panelists Andy Kroll, Trey Spivey and John Heagy.  Developers and planners are having to rethink approaches to amenities, parking, experience, etc.  Great to hear the perspective of industry veterans that have helped shape the response to workplace evolution.

Come one, come all!

Roger will be joining a panel discussion on Thursday, September 21st at The Four Seasons, hosted by CoreNet Global Atlanta Chapter. “Adapting to Densification” will highlight the fact that higher utilization, more efficient work spaces, and greater flexibility are allowing occupants to do more with less.  Is the physical world adapting?  The trend of increasing worker density is forcing substantial changes across all aspects of real estate. Structural population shifts and advancing technology have guaranteed the change is just getting started!  Register now to join our panel for this rich discussion.
