Construction has commenced on Midtown Union, a large mixed-use development in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia, and the future global headquarters of Invesco. The official groundbreaking ceremony took place December 9, 2019.
Invesco's presence in Atlanta dates back more than 40 years to 1978. Drawn by the strong supply of talent, a world-class airport and outstanding quality of life, we moved our global headquarters to Atlanta in 2007.
Earlier this year we announced plans to further expand our Atlanta global headquarters with the addition of 500 jobs and an investment of $70 million. The expansion will eventually bring us to nearly 1,200 professionals here. Our significant investment will strengthen our global operating platform for the benefit of our clients, employees and shareholders. Additionally, as always, we will continue to play an active role in our community.
To accommodate our expansion, Invesco will be moving our global headquarters to Midtown Union in 2022 as the anchor tenant. Midtown Union will provide us with additional space, excellent amenities and better access to public transportation and highways. The world-class facilities will help us manage nearly $1.2 trillion in assets on behalf of clients worldwide.*
We're very pleased that the new building will align with our commitment to environmental sustainability. Invesco is dedicated to helping care for our community, and we have a number of programs in place to help us reduce our impact on the environment.
Growing our firm is very exciting for us. It reflects our confidence in the long-term success of our business and our confidence in the city of Atlanta as the home for our global headquarters. The strong sense of community, convenient transportation and diverse talent pool continue to make Atlanta an attractive headquarters location as we grow our global business.
We are proud to be building an even stronger presence in this important market where many of our clients are located.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
