The Pinnacle at Jackson Place is a new, 9-story building situated on a prominent downtown corner in Jackson, Mississippi. The building, which contains predominately office space, is composed of a 2-story limestone-clad base with a glass curtainwall tower above that pulls away from the street in order to efficiently address the program needs of the upper-floor tenants. The roof of the limestone base serves as a terrace for the second-floor occupants, affording fantastic views up and down Capitol Street. A sleek, metal-clad wing caps off the southern facade.

The project was conceived as a part of an overall master plan for the entire block including a renovated public parking structure (with ground-floor retail), a public garden and housing. The building's retail is accessed along Capitol Street, but the main entrance to the building's 2-story lobby is off of the new corner plaza. Responding to the angled geometry of the neighboring One Jackson Place, the plaza and its green space become an urban living room for the pedestrians as well as the building's occupants. An enclosed arcade, which links parking to the Pinnacle and One Jackson Place, helps to define the northern edge of the new public garden. Intended to be quieter and lusher than the plaza, the garden is flanked by retail and a large steel trellis to the west and an elevated private terrace to the east.

The project has been submitted for LEED Gold certification and uses several techniques to increase user comfort and reduce energy costs. High efficiency mechanical systems, a reflective roof, low flow plumbing fixtures, a recycling center and light sensors throughout the building are just some of the other strategies employed. The building's central downtown location puts its occupants just blocks away from hotels, museums, restaurants, entertainment venues, a public park and a variety of retail services.
