The Columbia Center Complex consists of two thirteen-story, 600,000 square foot office towers with a two-story connector building, a three-level, 3,000 car parking structure with direct access to each tower, an integrated 30,000 square foot fitness center, an 80,000 square foot, four-story stand-alone office building, and a two-story, 36,000 square foot medical clinic. The first tower was completed in 1989 while the second tower was completed in 1998. As a testament to the timeless design and quality materials, one cannot discern the difference in age. The site is located alongside Interstate 75 and called for the creation of a high quality, high visibility project.
YAMASAKI’s solution features a landscaped mall with a fountain that serves as a main approach to the formal composition of the two office towers. The building exteriors are composed of granite and architectural brick fabricated panels. Arched stone and custom glass entrances welcome visitors into the main lobby, which has vaulted ceilings, stone arches, inlaid granite, crystal and polished bronze.
The fitness center, which sits on the parking structure to the west of the site, houses a retail fitness facility, including wellness equipment, a running track, and locker rooms. The outpatient medical clinic includes several primary care practices, an emergency walk-in clinic, diagnostic departments, and administrative and business offices.
