One of downtown’s most unique office buildings, Baltimore Block, is marking its first major new tenant following an overhaul from top to bottom last year.

Project leaders have announced that consulting firm Code Zero, which outgrew its coworking space on the Westside, will occupy the building’s second floor of the building.

It’s a big win for the unique property, which is now about 60 percent leased following the completion of the renovation. In marketing materials, the JLL leasing team says Baltimore Block is ideally suited for creative firms looking for something beyond a corporate setting.

Comprised of historic row homes dating to 1885, a large 1980s office addition, and a massive light-filled atrium, Baltimore Block isn’t a typical downtown office arrangement. The complex actually began life as Atlanta’s first apartments.

In addition to office space, the building features 15 “penthouse” apartments. Some span three floors, while each offers high-end finishes and terraces with city views.

Gene Nix, managing partner for Code Zero, indicated the company selected the building for its location, providing easy walkability to Midtown and downtown, as well as quick MARTA access to the airport.

Baltimore Block’s distinctive architecture and skyline views were also a draw, Nix said.

Eventually, Code Zero plans to expand into more space in the complex.
