Parking in downtown Atlanta can be difficult and expensive. We encourage you to use MARTA.
Arriving by MARTA:
Transit to the Peachtree Center station on the North line. At the Peachtree Center Station exit on the Harris Street end. The signs inside station will point to the Hyatt Regency Hotel. Take the East escalator up to the street. Once outside you will be facing Peachtree Street. Turning quick right make a U turn from the escalator and follow the walkway between the station entrance and office building until it dead ends at Harris Tower. The Harris Tower is about 250 feet from Peachtree Street. We are on the 19th floor in the Small Business Administration office.

Take I-75/85 S to exit 249A Courtland Street. Turn right on Courtland Street and make a right at the first intersection, Baker Street . Continue on Baker, crossing Peachtree Street (the Hyatt Regency Hotel will be on your left) and park in either of the parking lots on the right side. Walk back up to Peachtree Street and cross to the Hyatt Regency side. Walk one block south (towards downtown) and you will come to Harris Street. Cross over Harris Street and continue a few steps south on Peachtree. As soon as you pass the Bank you will come to a long partially covered walkway on your left (between the building and the Marta entrance). Take the walkway until it dead ends at the Harris Tower about 250 feet from Peachtree Street. We are on the 19th floor in the Small Business Administration office.
