Walkthrough of a Standard Floor at the Atlanta Tech Village

With our 4th floor complete at the Atlanta Tech Village, we can now visually highlight many of the elements and explain some of the thinking behind them. The 4th floor is our first finished floor and we’ve already identified a dozen smaller items we’ll be changing for the exact replica 3rd and 5th floors, but we’re pleased with how everything came together. Also, with tenants moving in, we’ll also have tons of feedback over the next few weeks that we’ll take into account for the other floors.

Here’s a walkthrough of the main elements.

Overall, the idea is to have a variety of shared and private spaces that promote collaboration and serendipitous interactions while allowing startups to scale and contract as necessary.

    Great looking digs, David. And excellent work to the whole Atlanta Tech Village team on the great progress. This will be the new paradigm for office spaces and co-working spaces not just for startups but businesses everywhere. It’s exciting to know this is in Atlanta.

    Thanks for everything your team continues to do!

  2. Looks fantastic and congrats on all the progress. Look forward to watching all the progress and to hopefully being a tenant sometime soon.

  3. Looks awesome, David! Quick comment about the serendipitous interactions – I would imagine that the environment could be distracting for some entrepreneurs. Would love to see a future post from you about how to keep focus. I know you personally have INCREADIBLE focus. How do you transfer that to your start ups?

    1. Thanks! We’re encouraging people to go paperless as much as possible but all desks do come with small rolling drawers on wheels that are big enough for file folders.
