The Allen Morris Company today introduced new building lobby and building amenities renderings for its highly-acclaimed Star Metals Offices, the commercial office space component of the transformative, mixed-use Star Metals Atlanta district. Currently under construction, Star Metals Offices is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. Star Metals Offices, located at 1055 Howell Mill Road, is already playing a key role in forging the future of an ever-evolving Atlanta.
Designed by Atlanta-based, award-winning Square Feet Studio, both the lobby’s and amenities interior design style will be iconic but approachable, incorporating industrial elements representative of the Westside’s history, such as poured concrete and steel, but softened with luxurious fabrics, leather and woods, all to create a timeless effect. The design does not just imitate the past, but reinterprets it in a new way, further connecting Star Metals to the neighborhood, furthering the iconic Oppenheim Architecture design of the project as a whole.
The 10,000 square foot amenity level located on the building’s seventh floor, features an outdoor terrace for shared collaborations and events, along with a boardroom, conference room, covered outdoor seating, as well as a bar and catering kitchen for special events.
The 14-story, Cl ass ‘A’ LEED certified office tower totals 260,000 square feet, including 30,000 square feet of retail and restaurants. Alongside the office building, Star Metals Hotel, a166-room boutique hotel, is expected to break ground in 2020.
Star Metals Offices will be The Allen Morris Company’s 84th successful development in its 60-year history. The 4.75-acre Star Metals project will also include a luxury multi-family residential tower with 409 units and ground floor retail, opening in July 2020.
“From literally the entrance to every component of our Star Metals development, we want the public to see and feel that they are in a truly special place,” said W. Allen Morris, Chairman and CEO of The Allen Morris Company. “Our intent, from concept forward, was to meld the rich history of the Westside with amenities that cater to innovative professionals and tech-savvy companies. In essence, this is a truly unique melding of the area’s industrial past and its technological present.”
“We were really excited to work on a project that was trying to do something so different for Atlanta,” said John Bencich, co-founder and principal of Square Feet Studio. “I think this district that Allen Morris is creating on the Westside is going to be really transformative, and we are working to ensure that the design magnifies his vision for the area.”
Star Metals Offices touts as its anchor tenant Spaces, the pioneer in creative, flexible workspaces, which will occupy the building’s 7th and 8th floors, including a 5,642-square-foot ground floor reception area and private Business Club fronting Howell Mill Road, along with more than 8,000 square feet of amenity-rich, outdoor landscaped private terrace collaboration and meeting areas for Spaces’ clients.
Star Metals is in the epicenter of West Midtown and will afford its office building tenants as well as its residential apartment tenants, modern living and work spaces, just footsteps away from the Westside’s vibrant restaurant scene, high-end shops and everyday conveniences.
Amenities of Star Metals Offices will include lushly landscaped outdoor terraces, multiple tenant collaboration areas, a fitness center, a bicycle storage room, and a locker room with shower facilities. The roof-top restaurant / bar will provide a unique rooftop amenity with panoramic views of Buckhead, Midtown and Downtown.
