For nearly two years, plans have been in the works to bring new life to a banal three-story office building that stands across West Peachtree Street from the Arts Center MARTA Station.

Now, work is finally getting underway at 1280 West, with crews filling a Dumpster along 16th Street with the old interiors.

When completed, the building will feature a new fritted glass facade, lending the impression of a reflected forest. It’s striving for sustainability, too, with rain-harvesting capabilities and new low-energy lighting throughout.

The revamped facility will be home to up to 200 employees of Interface, the world’s largest manufacturer of modular carpet, which is currently located in Vinings.

Originally, Parkside Partners had planned an industrial-style loft office complex here, complete with a rooftop restaurant. However, since Interface signed on, it’s unclear if the restaurant is still planned.

Permits put the cost of construction at $4 million. Expect work to carry into next year.
