Atlanta’s newest Class T office space
Atlanta’s newest Class T office space, The Interlock becomes first office building in Atlanta with smart windows
Developer S.J. Collins Enterprises has chosen to outfit The Interlock, Atlanta’s newest Class T office space and mixed-use development in the emerging West Midtown neighborhood of Atlanta, with View Dynamic Glass. This will make it the first office building in Atlanta with smart windows.
“The Interlock is 85 percent leased for its office space component, and we believe that is due to our commitment to providing the best in amenities, open space and design for residents, visitors and office workers in this market,” said Jeff Garrison, a partner at S.J. Collins Enterprises. “We are excited to offer the first work spot in Atlanta with this high-tech glass that will enhance the overall atmosphere within the space.”
Scientific research has proven View’s windows enhance mental and physical wellbeing by significantly reducing headaches, eyestrain and drowsiness. In addition, they control heat and glare, which improves the energy efficiency of buildings by up to 20 percent.
The windows don’t require the use of any shades or blinds and adjust automatically to the light.
“This product allows us to create a new type of office environment that we hope will dramatically improve productivity with big open patio spaces, tremendous outdoor areas, floor-to-ceiling windows and plenty of View Dynamic Glass,” said Garrison. “In a tight market, it’s amenities like this that are allowing us to be successful and attract high-profile clients who are looking to take their office environment up a notch to the next level.”
Garrison was familiar with View Dynamic Glass from his experience on the board of the Mount Vernon Presbyterian School, which had also chosen to use View’s smart windows.
“The View smart windows ensure education spaces at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School have ample natural light and access to views, which has been shown to improve student performance,” said Garrison. “At The Interlock, the View windows will let in the optimal amount of natural light and preserve views while blocking unwanted glare and heat.”
The commercial office component of The Interlock is currently pre-leased by a 50-square-foot space for Georgia Tech and a 120,000-square-foot lease for WeWork.
Located at the corner of Howell Mill Road and 14th Street, The Interlock is expected to offer 200,000 square feet of creative office space, 100,000 square feet of retail space, 345 apartment units and a rooftop view of the city's skyline, representing approximately $245 million of new development. The Interlock is scheduled for completion in 2020.
