AtlantaThe Dilweg Cos., a real estate investment firm focused on key economic markets in the Southeast, has announced that it is completing a major revamp of 101 Marietta Street, an office building formerly known as Centennial Tower. Renovations have already begun and are slated for completion by Thanksgiving.

“There has always been a landmark office building on this property since the early 1900s, and it has been known as 101 Marietta Street for most of its history. Our repositioning efforts connect the historical roots of Downtown to the evolving workplace needs of today,” said Anthony Dilweg, CEO of The Dilweg Cos., in a prepared statement.

“This is a prime example of redefining how we work, injecting creativity and imagination into the lobby of an iconic space. Dilweg’s renovations will resonate with current employers’ goals of offering a workplace that fosters innovation and provides an engaging experience.This building will be an epicenter of energy,” Katherine Lynch, first vice president of the CBRE leasing team, said in prepared remarks.
