Multiple new office buildings could soon be coming to Atlantic Station, adding nearly 750,000 square feet of space to the mixed-use district.
According to Bisnow, developer Hines has announced a start date for a two-building office project to be known as Atlantic Yards. Plans call for the structures to rise on the south side of 17th Street on either side of Market Street.
Unlike the glassy towers on the north side of 17th Street, the new buildings will be clad in brick. The two 10-story buildings would bring nearly 500,000 square feet of spec office space to the western side of The Connector.
The buildings will be the first new offices constructed in the sprawling mixed-use development since 2009.
Meanwhile, Hines also plans to develop an office building for “creative” companies just down the street, at the northwest corner of 17th and State streets—between Twelve Atlantic Station condos and Seventeen West Apartments.
That project, first announced more than two years ago, would be a seven-story, 220,000-square-foot timber-framed building.
Hines hopes to break ground on the Atlantic Yards project, which is being designed now, in the second quarter of 2018.
