Commerce Park at Northbrook was conceived as an alternative to the
residential style condominium offices being built throughout Atlanta.
Designed and developed by Ken Klebanoff with Trylon Architects, the
project was built as an 18,000-square-foot shell with plans to subdivide
the space into five individual units. This approach offered buyers the
chance to locate in a building with heightened commercial presence and
the ability to customize their spaces as needed while enjoying all the
benefits of private ownership including building equity.
The concept was to create an open, flexible space that could be adapted
to each purchaser’s specific needs. A pre-engineered steel, free-span
structure was employed to keep the interior as open and column-free as
possible. The building was constructed with the exterior envelope
complete, plumbing and the other utilities were stubbed into the space
pending the interior fit-up construction. The shell also included a
750-square-foot mezzanine space. Buyers had the option to extend the
mezzanines or combine spaces to create larger units. Trylon Architects
envisioned users seeking clean manufacturing or lab space, show room or
uncluttered studio space. As it turned out, all the tenant-owners were
office professionals, each with individual requirements and desires for
Commerce Park will include Phase I (completed) plus two
10,000-square-foot stand-alone LEED® registered buildings as part of
Phase II. The site work for Phase I of Commerce Park provides the
infrastructure for both phases of the project, including all parking,
landscaping, storm water facilities, utilities and utility stubs. The
site plan also features a courtyard installation between the completed
building and the future phase(s).

September/October 2010 issue of DCD.
