Repositioning an art deco classic.
The first building went up in 1926 with plans to become a terminal for streetcars. Demand for office space on this prime downtown corner scrapped those plans and resulted in construction of three more buildings, all connected to the original. Today, 90 years later, our repositioning of the Baker Center honors historic aspects of the original building while inserting modern spaces to support today’s mobile worker. A dramatic new entry corner features a 12-story glass curtain wall, two-story atrium and state-of-the-art media wall. Designed to attract young professionals, the interconnected buildings have been reimagined to include updated store fronts, collaborative workspaces with exposed ceilings, a “third space” open plan with concierge, fitness center, and panoramic roof deck. Opening Summer 2017, the Baker Center offers 450,000SF of office space in the heart of downtown.
