Office Development of the Year

The Civica Office Commons marks an evolution in design for the modern urban business environment. Created for high-tech tenants, the buildings provide expansive floor plates and unique building amenities, including a glass-enclosed “great room” that extends the workplace from the typical office floors into the building’s public spaces.

Spanning between the development’s two towers with an arching glass roof, the great room forms a striking building entrance with 45-foot ceilings, while creating a comfortable, central community space. The focal point is a freestanding granite fireplace, surrounded by furniture groupings that serve a wide range of formal and informal gatherings. Additional building amenities, such as retail and tenant support functions further activate the space. 

Externally, the building’s distinctive roofline becomes an integrated aspect of its identity, embellishing the character of its urban neighborhood.
