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 their space.

Advanced Medical Group
Advanced Medical Group receives few clients at their offices but needed to accommodate up to 29 employees comfortably. An intricate yet free-flowing design that uses glass partitions and glass doors gives an open and spacious feel throughout the offices. Trylon Architects knew this design would preserve acoustical privacy yet permit light and views between the offices making the most of limited space. A formal entry was not in the program, but the circular greeting area with its curved, glazed panels and softly lighted ceiling drop adds drama to the wide hallway beyond, which extends the full length of AMG’s corporate office. On the second floor, retractable nine-foot glass pocket doors between a 12-person conference room and two of the private offices upstairs can be opened as needed for large employee gatherings.

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).

Note: Suite 103, Offices for Utilities Analysis, was featured in the September/October 2010 issue of DCD.
