Atlanta’s Newest Class A Office Space, The Interlock, Features Smart Windows from View
View windows will let in the optimal amount of natural light and preserve views while blocking unwanted glare and heat
Developer S.J. Collins Enterprises has chosen to outfit The Interlock, Atlanta’s newest mixed-use development project with Class A office space in the emerging West Midtown neighborhood, with View Dynamic Glass.
“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,” said Jeff Garrison, a partner at S.J. Collins Enterprises. “We are excited to offer the first building in Atlanta with these high-tech windows that will enhance the occupant experience within the space.”
Scientific research has proven View’s smart windows enhance mental and physical wellbeing by significantly reducing headaches, eyestrain and drowsiness and studies show significant gains in productivity as a result. In addition, they control heat and glare, which improves the energy efficiency of buildings by up to 20 percent.
“Choosing View Smart Windows allows us to create a new type of office environment that will dramatically improve productivity with big open spaces that feature the floor-to-ceiling windows,” said Garrison. “In a tight market, it’s amenities like this that allow us to be successful and attract high-profile clients who are looking to take their office environment 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.
The commercial office component of The Interlock is currently pre-leased by a 50,000-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.
