Located at a busy, pivoting point intersection where retail, commercial and residential properties merge, the design direction for this proposed office building emphasizes a connection to its neighbors—both the businesses and the residential communities—with the goal of integrating these adjacencies visually and figuratively to enhance the urban community. The concept strives to encourage pedestrian activity and communication. A predominance of translucent glass allows natural light inside while providing views to outdoor street-level activity and adding a sense of vibrancy to the community. A connection also exists between the curved front of the building and a new green public park that will face that portion of the structure.
