COPT Development and Construction acquired Greens 1, a six-story IB construction office building in the Westfields area of Chantilly, and retained KGD Architecture to perform a complete building Repositioning. In addition to new building lobbies at the front and rear entrances, KGD Architecture designed new elevator lobbie and restroom standards for the building.
The first floor also includes a new ~1,900 SF fitness area with contemporary locker rooms and was designed with a white box area adjacent to the landscaped courtyard for a future cafe. KGD Architecture also designed a 1,300 SF spec suite on the first floor which leased quickly upon release to the market.
The Repositioning involved the removal of a non-egress, secured staircase constructed for the exclusive use of a former tenant. The void created new leasable square footage on main floors and a storage area on the ground floor. The related redesign of the egress corridors on the first floor required close coordination with County field inspectors and staff.
