Description

The six-story structure was constructed in response to strong demand for large floor plate office spaces. The skylit atrium-lobby enables the six floors of offices to share the natural light and the beauty of the lobby’s interior, which is accented with water features, furniture, art, and sculptures that were created by John Portman.
