Please see the statement from Mayor Steve Tumlin regarding the new IKEA location to be built on Franklin Gateway. 

“I am both honored and delighted today to continue to bring the message to the City of Marietta that Franklin Gateway is open for business! We are excited to announce that IKEA will open its second store in Georgia in the heart of our Franklin Gateway corridor. This international company with locations in 49 countries will offer a positive shopping experience for both Marietta residents and visitors alike thus bring with it a positive impact on Marietta.

It is a community effort to attract such a major company, and we would like to thank everyone who has joined together to make this possible. From the original vision with the City’s investment of the 2013 Redevelopment Bond, to ongoing streetscape improvements on Franklin Gateway, and forward-thinking investment in infrastructure by our Board of Lights and Water, the City has been laying the groundwork for continued economic development in the corridor.

I want to extend a special thank you to the City of Marietta’s economic development office, along with its counterparts in Cobb and the state, Jones Lang LaSalle, the Franklin Gateway CID, and our new and existing Franklin Gateway businesses who have all worked together to encourage this iconic worldwide business, IKEA, to build its newest location in Marietta.

With IKEA becoming part of the Franklin Gateway Community, more job opportunities for our community will be created along with a quality shopping experience. With IKEA joining another icon, Atlanta United, on Franklin Gateway, MARIETTA is proud to welcome this landmark international company who is now placing an exclamation mark on Franklin Gateway as an outstanding and desirable destination point in the Metro.”
