Highwoods Properties filed an application with the city of Brookhaven for Century Center to be annexed into the newly created city.

Century Center, a commercial office complex, comprises about 120 acres and is owned by Highwoods and Emily Fisher Crum, a Brookhaven resident and long-time philanthropist.

The property is located in unincorporated DeKalb County and is bound by Clairmont Road, Century Boulevard, Century Parkway and Interstate 85 South. The property has five points of ingress and egress along the access road to I-85 South, plus three points of ingress and egress from Clairmont Road. The property also houses a half-mile of Peachtree Creek.

The property owners decided to petition Brookhaven for annexation based on the quality of the services available, according to Jim Bacchetta, vice president of Highwoods Atlanta Division.

The application will be reviewed by Brookhaven and must be approved by the Brookhaven City Council.

Century Center is home to the Atlanta Marriott Century Center and several General Services Administration agencies, including the FBI, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as other commercial tenants.
