Atlanta Esports Ventures to Launch Atlanta Reign Facility

Posted on: Nov 26, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

Atlanta Esports Ventures, a joint venture between Cox Enterprises and Province Inc., has decided to develop the headquarters for Overwatch League franchise Atlanta Reign in Midtown Atlanta.

The facility is said to aid “in the creation of forty-five new jobs and an investment of USD 100,000,000” to help develop esports’ growing ecosystem in Atlanta.  

While the official release did not detail the exact location of the new facility, an October 22 report by Bisnow documents the purchase of a 13,200 sq foot commercial property in West Midtown Atlanta under the name Atlanta Reign. Officials with Cox Enterprises and Province, Inc. declined to comment at the time of the purchase, which rang in at USD 2,27 million according to CoStar records.

The news of Atlanta Reign’s forthcoming headquarters arrives at an exciting time amidst the city’s esports aspirations; in addition to Hi-Rez Expo and the launch of Atlanta Esports Alliance, this year’s DreamHack Atlanta is said to have achieved a record-breaking attendance of over 35,000 people.
