ATLANTA, GEORGIA - July 26, 2019

MOSA Design Studios, an Atlanta-based architectural firm founded in 2009 proudly announces its expansion into the commercial real estate industry. In addition to architectural designing and planning, the firm will also afford clients the leasing and sale of offices, industrial, retail, land and investment property. Monica Fenderson, the president and sole-proprietor of MOSA Design Studios has decided to continue its growth by adding the specialization of commercial real estate in order to satisfy the emerging and global requirements of the construction industry.

“We believe this expansion is only logical as we want to deliver returns and greater results to our clients. With low vacancies and demand outpacing supply, the commercial real estate development sector continues to be one of the strongest. Considering how consequential this sector is, MOSA Design Studios is adamant on continuing the firm’s development within the commercial real estate market and satisfying client needs throughout the market cycle,” says Mrs. Fenderson.

An architect by training, Mrs. Fenderson has endeavored tirelessly to broaden her knowledge and comprehension of the commercial real estate market. Likewise, Mrs. Fenderson has very recently graduated from The Real Estate Associate Program. “REAP is an industry-backed, market-driven program that educates graduates on the essential real estate functions of the macroeconomic environment and the commercial real estate supply.” Moreover, REAP additionally serves as the “most successful diversity initiative in the commercial real estate industry.” While Mrs. Fenderson is 1 out of the 452 African-American women who are architects, she is now also part of the management-level demographic within the commercial real estate industry. As the management-level of this industry has less than 1,000 persons of color out of 125,000 professionals, Mrs. Fenderson is a qualified anomaly.

Determined to master her field, Mrs. Fenderson fulfilled the role of a plan reviewer for the Gwinnett County Building Department for 11 years. Here, she enforced and educated tenants on international building codes. From there, she became certified by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program and is now apart of real-estate and architecture organizations such as ICSC, AIA, ULI, NOMA, NCARB, and the Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors as well. These organizations aim to integrate civic leadership and community development into the missions of their respective fields, and have greatly aided in cultivating the business woman that Mrs. Fenderson is today.

An architect by training and a certified real-estate agent by sheer tenacity, Mrs. Fenderson has now decided to afford entrepreneurs and working class citizens the opportunity to learn about these sectors. She frequently spends time outside of her firm instructing a course on the importance and complexities of the building permit process, architectural planning, and hiring contractors.

Thus, while Mrs. Fenderson is greatly concerned with maximizing the profits of her clients, optimizing MOSA Design Studios, and expanding its market, above all else, she values the expansion of American opportunity.

We have worked diligently to develop an interesting and  a diverse portfolio of outstanding assembly spaces, offices, warehouses, restaurants, adaptive reuse, education, industrial, commercial and residential projects. 

As we move towards 2019, I think of every client, colleague, and friend that has touched my path in the growth of MOSA and exciting events that have happened this year. Some of these are highlighted below: 

  • Our recent relocation of our headquarters to 2047 Grayson Highway in Grayson, Georgia

  • A MOSA Design Studios cameo on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"

  • Cover spotlight on the kick-off of Savvy Magazine in December 

In 2019 and beyond, I remain committed to quality, innovation, and community.
