Hinman Company/AVBPortage, Michigan
LEED Certified in 2018, 750 Trade Centre Way was the first of three office buildings in YAMASAKI’s master planned mixed-use office park that sits at the intersection of the main crossroads through town. The three-story, 79,112 square foot building features a gently curved lobby with a two-story atrium that serves as the main entry and focal point.
YAMASAKI was challenged to design a building that provides a strong and inviting design to attract tenants that also fit within our client’s aggressive budget and schedule requirements. The solution for the exterior wall replaced field-laid masonry exterior walls with brick-inlaid architectural precast concrete panels, a strategy that saved both time and money. The ribbon windows with curtain wall accents also provide an economic and appealing solution that met the owner’s requirements.
The Class A building was 100% leased and fully occupied six months after the core and shell constructions were completed. YAMASAKI also provided planning and interior design for most of the tenant areas, including two full-floor tenants and the building owner/ management company. The building’s interior features include custom office suites, conference rooms, a small fitness center with locker rooms and showers, and other traditional building services.
