The building—located at 2500 Windy Ridge Parkway—is a Class-A, 15-story office building developed in 1985 with 315,918 rentable square feet. The exterior finish and structural components of the building are a combination of reinforced concrete framing and a reflective glass curtain wall system with aluminum mullions. The building has a unique, curved architectural form that is stepped in—both vertically and horizontally—providing floor plates varying in size from approximately 22,000 square feet to approximately 25,000 square feet. The property is situated on just over 8 acres adjacent to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. It offers excellent views of the river, Atlanta’s midtown and downtown skylines, and Kennesaw Mountain. 2500 Wildwood earned USGBC’s LEED Gold Certification in 2010 and LEED Platinum Certification in July 2012; was awarded BOMA 360 in December 2012; and was selected in 2011 as the recipient of Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Environmental Award for Innovation in Business – Medium Category.
