Dotan Zuckerman will take over the leasing of Portman's Spring Quarter development, under construction at the highest point in downtown Atlanta.

Dotan Zuckerman, who spent the last year five years carefully curating the retail tenant mix at Hine’s recently opened Hines project in North Carolina’s Research Triangle, will now take his leasing talents to the Dallas Arts District and Spring Quarter in Atlanta.

Zuckerman has been named head of retail and activation for Portman Holdings, the development and management firm founded by architect John Portman, designer of Detroit’s Renaissance Center, the Embarcadero Center in San Francisco, and the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

“Portman has always been visionary. The team has a laser-sharp focus on creating exceptional mixed-use projects in urban infill settings,” Zuckerman said. “I’m inspired by the opportunity to play a role in bringing these transformative projects to life.”

One that Zuckerman will be spending a lot of his time with is Spring Quarter, a mixed-use development underway in Midtown Atlanta with 528,000 sq. ft. of office, 40,000 sq. ft. of retail and dining, and 370 luxury residences. The site will retain the historic H.M. Patterson House, which Portman plans to turn into a new retail destination for the community at the highest elevation point in the city.

Other projects awaiting Zuckerman include Magnolia, a 189-acre mixed-use project that will introduce a new entertainment, shopping, and dining district to the waterfront of Charleston, S.C., and the Dallas Arts District that blends residential and office with retail.

Zuckerman previously served as VP of leasing at North American, where he helped bring Whole Foods, Apple, Tesla, and Lululemon to Avalon in Alpharetta and brought in 40 new tenants at Atlanta’s Atlantic Station.
