LEED Platinum 2010

Choosing a walkable and bikable location close to mass transit, while creating a new, healthy, and light-filled workplace environment, was the right decision for the well-being of the COOPER CARRY family.

In the fall of 2009, after having spent the previous 25 years in a low-rise suburban office building in the Buckhead Area of Atlanta, COOPER CARRY, a national design firm offering architecture, planning, landscape architecture, interior design, and environmental graphic design services, made the move downtown. The new Atlanta office space, in a multi-tenant building designed by Johnson-Burgee, consists of 50,400 gross square feet on the 23rd and 24th floors of the 50-story 191 Peachtree Tower. The office is designed for 225 employees.

The firm's desire to "practice what we preach" relative to our beliefs about sustainable place-making led to the decision to relocate to the established downtown office tower so that we could take advantage of Atlanta's urban core offerings. Sustainable Communities has been a long held core value for COOPER CARRY. Choosing a walkable and bikable location close to mass transit, while creating a new, healthy, and light-filled workplace environment, was the right decision for the well-being of the COOPER CARRY family.

Site context

COOPER CARRY's office at 191 Peachtree Street is located in the central business district of downtown Atlanta, situated on Atlanta's "main street." It is located directly above a MARTA mass-transit rail station. At the intersection of Peachtree Street and International Boulevard, the office tower is within blocks of the major hotel and convention district, tourist entertainment attractions, state and federal governmental centers, and Georgia's largest university, Georgia State University.
