A prospective tenant new to Macon could bring as many as 200 jobs to downtown if it chooses to relocate in the Macon-Bibb County Urban Development Authority’s property at 111 Third St.
The tenant is interested in leasing 32,000 square feet of the property, which is the former home of the federal Chapter 13 bankruptcy office. The deal would require 200 parking spaces.
“Two hundred parking spaces sounds like 200 jobs,” authority Executive Director Alex Morrison told the board at Thursday’s meeting.
Morrison said the authority does not know the company’s identity, only that it would be new to town.
The property also has drawn interest from another prospect looking to lease 10,000 square feet.
“We’ve had the kind of activity there that we’ve been hoping for,” authority Chairman Bob Lewis said.
