This 1.1 million sq ft commercial high rise building contains one million square feet of office space with street-level retail. Organised around a central thoroughfare that doubles as public civic plaza space, the building will create new urban connections between Old Fourth Ward Park and the rapidly revitalising Atlanta BeltLine corridor.
Targeting LEED Gold certification, the building will include sustainable design features that reduce energy consumption, address stormwater runoff, and encourage alternate forms of transportation. The main plaza will connect to the planned light rail station on the BeltLine, and the building will incorporate a bike path that connects to the BeltLine Bicycle Trail and inner-city bike trails beyond.
The high ceilings, along with the optimised floor plates, are designed to maximise spatial daylight autonomy.
Utilising extensive daylight and thermal modelling, the design team is creating a building façade that will enhance building performance while maintaining daylight and thermal comfort for occupants.
