Luxury auto maker Mercedes-Benz announced plans to relocated its USA headquarters to Atlanta.

After weeks of speculation the company would leave its current home in New Jersey, where it has operated from for the past 50 years.

The new location is expected to be near Perimeter Mall and construction should finish in early 2017. About 1,000 employees will be “affected” by the plans but it is unclear how many jobs will be relocated or created in Atlanta
