Palisades Office Park comprises four multi-tenant LEED Gold certified office buildings totaling 639,000 square feet, ideally located in the heart of the Central Perimeter submarket, with immediate access to I-285 and GA-400. These four buildings stand within a mixed used development featuring apartments as well as 15,000 square feet of restaurants and convenience retail, which complement the rapidly expanding walkable area nearby. The recent redevelopment around the site includes approximately $5 million in road improvements, multi-use trails/sidewalks, enhanced property access and additional green space. A host of amenities provides tenants of Palisades Office Park an unmatched experience of wellness, connection and service: from a daylit fitness center, food trucks and 100% onsite management, to holiday gatherings, charitable service opportunities and even organic foods grown on site. Palisades Office Park continues to evolve beyond the common, carbon-intensive commuter office, towards its future as an unmatched expression of environmental and social sustainability in Atlanta’s multi-tenant office building space.

The iconic buildings A, B & C encapsulate the final wave of Brutalist architectural style in the early 1980s, hinting towards the coming postmodern aesthetic and clearly influenced by the Japanese styles evoked in the geometry of the buildings’ cast concrete levels, geometric lines and exaggerated slabs. This architectural heritage laid the foundation for its unique sustainability journey.

Further renovation includes re-imagined community gathering spaces outdoors, water-efficient perennial landscapes, night-sky friendly LED site lighting, and the iconic brightly colored monument letters identifying each building. Overall, 9 elevators have been modernized throughout the Palisades Office Park, and the entire property earned Energy Star Certification in 2020 with the D Building earning a score of 93. Infrastructure upgrades provide tenants with efficient electrical and cooling power, modern IT infrastructure, building controls and more, translating Palisades Office Park into a space that fosters community, offers flexibility and supports work-life balance in tomorrow’s workplace.

In 2021 APG made a major investment to upgrade the HVAC distribution system to include an industry-leading Trane Agility Magnetic Bearing Water-Cooled Chiller, delivering over 40% better IPLV than the ASHRAE 90.1-2016 requirement with a 25% lower refrigerant charge than other medium pressure chillers.
