The Corky McMillin Companies recently broke ground on a 104,397 square foot Class A office building in the 360-acre Liberty Station mixed-use development. The three-story structure is designed to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification and is scheduled for completion Summer 2009.
Located on Historic Decatur Road in the Liberty Station Office District, Building 902 will feature open, efficient floor plates to provide a low core factor and maximize the window-line, a showcase two-story lobby and two third-floor balconies with panoramic bay and downtown views.
Designed by KMA Architecture & Engineering, Building 902 LEED design features include water efficient fixtures to reduce water usage by 30 percent, fossil filter inserts for stormwater quality control, roof slope and finishes to reduce heat island effect, locally sourced materials to reduce environmental effects of processing and transportation, plus 10 percent of all construction materials will be from recycled sources.
Building 902 also incorporates a construction waste management program to divert 50 percent of construction waste from landfill disposal.
Building 902 will join six other completed Liberty Station office buildings that are currently 100 percent leased. Upon completion, the Liberty Station Office District will consist of seven buildings totaling 380,000 square feet of office space on 22 acres. BYCOR General Contractors built all six Office District buildings and is overseeing construction for Building 902.
An international defense contractor has pre-leased 80,000 square feet in Building 902 leaving approximately 25,000 square feet available in the entire Office District.
All of the Office District’s current leases combine for a consideration totaling approximately $109.2 million. Other project tenants include:
