Parking on the street is limited. If you are willing to walk a few blocks you can likely find a spot.
There is $1.5/hour parking in a surface lot across the street near Barnes and Noble. Credit cards accepted. The once collapsed parking deck connected to the building is back in service! Cheapest parking is the surface lot across from The Cheetah, I believe they are $4/day cash only.
The Midtown Marta station is a few blocks away, the Tech Trolley (free) runs from it to the door of the Centergy Building.
