Design Achievement - In perfect alignment with contemporary officing needs, DLR Group’s T3 West Midtown brings a modern loft office to Atlanta. This uniquely sustainable, mass-timber building is the second of its kind for DLR Group with Hines development, following the success of the first T3 in Minneapolis. The T3 concept – Timber, Transit, Technology – is a new asset class. This amenity-rich, modern loft office concept provides the richness, character, and warmth of late 1800’s heavy timber buildings, with the advantages of modern, class-A construction. At West Midtown, the model adapts to match the local Atlanta market, climate, and tenant profile. Details including a blackened steel façade, harkening back to the site’s history as a steel mill, private outdoor space at every level, and a shared rooftop amenity deck.
Scope Summary - The 205,000-SF office building includes 15,000 SF of ground-floor retail space, shared social workspace, a fitness center, rooftop terrace, and 61 below-grade parking spaces. State-of-the-art mechanical systems, enclosure, elevatoring, acoustics, and voice & data technology integration marry to an exposed mass timber structural system. DLR Group provided architectural services in partnership with Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture.
