Mobile gaming company FanDuel has inked a deal to move into the Ponce City Market.

The online gaming and sportsbook platform announced last month its plans to bring roughly 900 high-tech jobs to Atlanta over the next five years.

Monday the company said it would build out its 68,000 square-foot tech hub on the third floor of the historic building in the Old Fourth Ward.

"Ponce City Market is the perfect location for our new technology campus and reflects our commitment to becoming a central part of the Atlanta corporate footprint," said Sarah Butterfass, Chief Product Officer for FanDuel Group. "This historic building offers our employees a blend of old-world charm, cutting edge sophistication and modern amenities that will deliver an unmatched working environment. Additionally, its location allows us to build deep ties to Atlanta's diverse pipeline of talent coming from its many top-flight universities."

Jamestown, the real estate investment and management firm behind Ponce City Market, said it is happy to have the new company.

"Over the last few years, Ponce City Market has become a major employment hub for the City of Atlanta," said Matt Bronfman, CEO of Jamestown, the real estate investment and management company behind Ponce City Market. "FanDuel will add to that important distinction and further grow the property's dynamic ecosystem of tech and creative class companies."
