As luxury office space began to surge in Golden Valley, Altus Properties knew it would have to innovate to remain a top competitor. Following our design team’s work on Golden Hills’ lobby in 2019, the real estate investor sought the firm’s expertise to reimagine its primary amenity and bring it up-to-par with the building’s other common areas and neighboring offices.
The amenity space, dubbed 701 Local, was built to maximize a small footprint of 1,700 square feet. The centerpiece of the space is the water mist fireplace that was added to elevate comfort and partially separates the lounge from the grab-n-go market. The cozy, inviting space provides multiple options for socialization.
The grab-n-go market features brand new, state-of-the-art appliances and offers a large variety of farm-fresh sandwiches, salads, beverages and snacks. Adjacent to the market is an air hockey table to encourage socialization and provide tenants with a reprieve from the office environment. All of 701 Local receives substantial natural light from the ground-floor, exterior windows that span an entire wall.
