An excerpt from the building’s TOBY award entry is below:
Imagine driving to work in rush-hour traffic, then pulling into a wooded, park-like setting. You have entered The Pointe, Building 500, conveniently located on Northridge Road at Georgia 400. You find a parking space easily in one of the many parking areas, step out of your car, and walk through beautifully landscaped grounds. You pass through the glass atrium, say hello to the on-site security officer, and walk down the curved staircase to the fitness center for a quick workout. After that, you stop for breakfast at the on-site Café. And you grab a daily paper and head out to one of the patio tables overlooking the trees and pond. Perhaps you will catch a glimpse of the resident pair of hawks landing nearby, or see ducks and geese content on the water. Once you finish breakfast, you simply catch the elevator to your office, where you are treated to beautiful views, an on-site security, maintenance, and day porter staff to keep you safe and your environment clean and operating efficiently.
