An open day-lit lobby that brings the outdoors in is just one way this repositioning appealed to new tenants.
MPA was asked by National Development to reposition this existing building to attract new tenants and to raise its profile in the marketplace. A new open, day-lit lobby featuring a new glass curtain wall sits on the outer building face for better visibility. A new entrance plaza allows for outside dining and casual seating. New food options and a fitness area provide upgraded amenities to building tenants and visitors.
A double sided custom mural designed by MPA’s graphic design team visually enlivens the lobby and divides the café from the adjoining fitness center. The mural evokes the surrounding transportation options, subtlely underscoring a key selling feature for the building owners to present to potential tenants.
The outside also comes inside, as the lobby features casual seating arrangements along with interior "living" walls of live plants and a low planter separating the entry and café.
