Walkthrough of the 1st Floor at the Atlanta Tech Village

Today we received our certificate of occupancy and opened the 1st floor at the Atlanta Tech Village. Now, the 1st floor is very different from the other floors (standard floor, 2nd floor) in that it is primarily amenities. From a buildout and design perspective, the 1st floor was much more complicated due to the hardwood floors, custom millwork, and more intricate ceilings.

Let’s take a look at the 1st floor:

Octane Coffee

  • High-end, locally owned coffee shop and bar
  • Indoor and outdoor seating
  • Catering available
  • Adjacent to the conference center and across from the community center

Overall, I’m very pleased with how everything turned out. I believe that having an Octane Coffee in the heart of Buckhead will bring many people through the door that might not otherwise interact with the tech community, thereby increasing the awareness of so many good things going on. The 1st floor sets the tone for the Village, and it’s a great one.
