11201 North Port Center
In an affluent yet conservative community, a signature building was needed as an identifying structure on the most visible corner in the city. At this location, shared by 2 gas stations and a fast food restaurant, was a residential style sandwich shop with significant setback restrictions and difficult access. Working with the city, a new 2 story 10,000SF office building was approved which engages the corner and establishes an edge for future pedestrian oriented development.
Signature Gateway Building
The design incorporated familiar materials of brick and stone layered to add depth and to recognize the single story scale of developments in this area. By extending a garden style wall on 2 sides of the building an urban edge was created while screening parking and banking drive thru from vision of the corner. The principal entry will illuminate at night exposing finishes of stainless steel railings and tile accents. By taking advantage of this location, tenants looking for recognition of their brand will have noticeable exposure.
