Falcons Owner Arthur Blank Owns Some Sweet Atlanta Real Estate (Photo)
In the upper right and below is an aerial photo of Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blanks’s 15,000-square-foot mansion, located in the Buckhead section of Atlanta. The palace comes equipped with six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, all amid a massive 4.3-acre plot of Georgia real estate. The Blank family purchased the home in 2006, later moving in after renovations were complete in 2008.
Blank (pictured below) co-founded Home Depot in 1978, with the opening of the company’s first store in nearby Marietta, Georgia. 39 years later, the home improvement giant boasts of nearly 2,300 stores worldwide, with an estimated workforce of 400,000 employees.
As a result of the above situation, Blank (purchased the Falcons in 2002), is believed to possess a net worth in the neighborhood of $3.1 billion.
Blank’s palatial pad sits seven miles north of downtown Atlanta, 41 miles southwest of the Falcons Flowery Branch (GA) headquarters and four miles east of Home Depot world headquarters.
