General Assembly Moves to a New Office Space at PCM!

07 21 2015 | Posted in Uncategorized

When General Assembly opened their first Atlanta campus at Ponce City Market in January, they brought a slew of exciting courses and workshops to creatives hoping to learn more about web development, user experience, and more. You might have seen their former space next to Dancing Goats off of North Ave, but General Assembly is now settled into their permanent space on the 2nd Floor in the West Wing of PCM in a space with impressive classrooms and great communal areas.

Tamisha McQuilkin, Audience Development Producer at General Assembly, gave us the inside scoop on the new office, the General Assembly mission, and what to expect from a class! Keep reading.

Why did General Assembly choose PCM for its office space?

General Assembly chose Ponce City Market due to it's incredible location in the middle of Atlanta, easily accessible from all parts of the greater metro area. The building itself has so much rich history and General Assembly wanted to help write the next chapter of the building's story. Plus, the reclaimed industrial feel aligns perfectly with General Assembly's architectural style.  


What is the mission of General Assembly?

General Assembly empowers individuals to pursue the work that they love through hands-on education in web & mobile development, user experience & visual design, digital marketing, data science & analytics, and product management.

How many people work out of the new office? How many people will attend class here?

12 employees, 20+ instructors, and 400+ students in 2015.

What is your favorite amenity in the General Assembly office at PCM?

Either our photo booth or the custom designed 30 inch community table that draws inspiration from the Sears, Roebuck, & Co. industrial design and overlooks Old Fourth Ward Park.
