Designed as speculative office building with infrastructure to support fit-ups for research spaces, this 75,000 sf, 5-story office facility is home to a variety of corporate and government tenants in Colchester, Vermont. The building’s location offers spectacular views of the Adirondacks across Lake Champlain. To capitalize on these vistas, the building’s massing incorporates “fin” elements that bisect the building. The front is prominently designed utilizing full-height floor-to-ceiling glass in the direction of the views. The opposite side contextually complements the building style of the office park, and is articulated with alternating bands of ribbon glass windows and brick masonry.
To date, the facility includes a medical practice, two professional services companies dedicated to financial investments and insurance, and a high security office for a federal government division.
Constructed partially in a hill, the ground floor of the facility provided an opportunity to include 20 indoor parking spaces, in addition to the new surface lot.
