Designed by Duda|Paine in conjunction with Gensler, NCR’s award-winning headquarters is located on a 4.16-acre L-shaped site that is comprised of two next generation office towers (North and South Towers). The campus fronts Spring Street, 8th Street and Williams Street in Midtown Atlanta close to the Georgia Tech campus and its Gold Tech Trolley line. It is also in direct proximity to the 5th and 10th street pedestrian bridge, the Georgia Tech conference center, and the Midtown MARTA station, just two blocks away.
The Premiere Class-A campus has a total of four vestibule entrances that span across Spring Street for public entry as well as an entrance on 8th Street for employees only. A soaring, glass gallery extends to the sixth floor of the Spring Street building shows the stunning artwork that can been seen by as people pass by. The main entrance is surrounded by striking raised planter beds that are filled with blooming seasonal flowers and contrasting foliage of various textures and heights.
The building is surrounded by Nuttall Oak, Ginkgo, Sweet Bay Magnolia and Maple trees with winter creeper in the plant beds. The double-LEED platinum campus also features terraced seating on IPE decking surrounded by turf. Ping-pong tables and solar mobile device charging stations are available to encourage community gatherings. This area also gives onlookers a chance to view the interior Tech Talk area from the exterior seating areas. Starting at South Tower main entrance, brick extends past the glass doors and reaches all the way to back of the building.
Directly in front of the building, a pet area is provided for the building neighbors. The parking garage is attached to the building and perfectly disguised with brick and tinted glass. The strategically placed artwork is attached the brick facing on Spring Street on the South Tower building, titled “Pangaea”. It shows a series of painted aluminum ribbons that assemble into a singular, 3-story composition. The artwork leads to a lit path surrounded by beautiful river rocks and stunning plants which ends at the side of Tech Square on Abercrombie.
