ROSWELL, Ga. – Delta Dental Insurance Co. is expanding its footprint in Roswell, signing a lease for 51,265 additional square feet of space in Sanctuary Park and bringing up to 200 new jobs to the city.
Part of the nation’s largest dental benefits carrier, Delta Dental will have 215,265 square feet of Class A office space leased.
The company will take occupancy in October of the top two floors at Stonebridge II, at 1120 Sanctuary Parkway in that portion that lies within Roswell’s city limits.
The expansion brings Delta Dental’s total number of employees to 1,000. Most of the growth will take place in the company’s customer service unit.
Roswell Inc has been involved with this project since February of 2016.
“We knew this office space would become available before it hit the market. We also knew Delta Dental was looking at expansion opportunities locally,” said Steve Stroud, executive director of Roswell Inc. “So we were able to connect the dots and get all the right people at the table in a timely way to make this deal happen.
“Anytime you add this many jobs to a local economy, it’s a big deal for the community.”
Delta Dental is part of a group of companies under common management that collectively serve 36.5 million enrollees nationwide.
Sanctuary Park houses one of three national customer service centers as well as sales, enrollment and other key departments
“We’re delighted to have found a LEED Gold building, and we’ll be building out the interior to those standards as well,” said Tonia Leonardos, facilities director for Delta Dental.
This expansion takes place within the boundary of the Roswell Opportunity Zone, an area of the city designated as part of the state incentive program to encourage redevelopment and revitalization.
The incentive offers companies tax credits for new jobs created for up to five years, which was a large factor in securing the lease.
