Porsche Experience Center Atlanta (One Porsche Drive)
Spanning across Fulton and Clayton Counties in the cities of Atlanta and Hapeville, Georgia, Porsche Cars North America developed a new 27.7-acre complex, dubbed One Porsche Drive, to serve as the automobile manufacture’s new North American headquarters. The Porsche Experience Center Atlanta and Headquarters includes office space, workshops, training facilities, restaurants, a museum, a green roof, and the Porsche Driver Experience.
Scope of Services
Kimley-Horn provided land development, landscape architecture, and environmental services for the new headquarters. Our project scope included demolition, site plan creation, grading, utility design services, stormwater conveyance, private pump station design, permitting, and construction phase services. The Kimley-Horn team also designed, permitted, and assisted Porsche in the construction and testing of their state-of-the-art fast-charging stations—which can fully charge the electric Porsche 918 Spyder Supercar in less than 15 minutes—and will be also working to install them at the Porsche Experience Center Los Angeles.
With office space for more than 400 employees, 13,000 square feet of conference and event space, a 1.6-mile driver development track and handling course, a training center for technicians, a driver-simulator lab, a classic car restoration workshop, a customer center, a fine-dining restaurant, and three levels of subsurface parking, One Porsche Drive represents Porsche’s largest foreign investment in their nearly 90-year history. The $100-million facility attracts over 30,000 visitors per year as it invites customers, business partners, and automotive enthusiasts to experience Porsche like never before.
One Porsche Drive, in conjunction with the new Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Terminal, are catalysts for the long-anticipated redevelopment of this portion of the Cities of Atlanta and Hapeville and unincorporated Clayton County. This is the beginning of a much larger movement toward sustainable development surrounding the world’s busiest airport.
