Diagnostic Ventures reached full occupancy during the middle of the Great Recession. This speaks highly both of the developer and the property. The property offered a generous area for parking, high ceilings, ease of ingress and egress, and a traffic light for access onto Peachtree Industrial. The developer complemented the building’s brick and block construction with brick and antique mortar on the inside face of the exterior walls. The effect was to produce the ambiance of older construction, but without mold or other contaminants. The developer brought light into the old building by cutting over 60 openings into the thick walls and installing highly efficient low-E glass. The developer removed the old roof and replaced it with rigid foam insulation and a new 80 mil TPO membrane. The developer spared no energy marketing the property. The market proved there is a significant block of tenants desirous of uplifting work environments.
3580 Pierce Drive is located just off of Peachtree Industrial in Chamblee, the property is within 10 minutes of both Buckhead and Perimeter Center, a mile south I-285, and very close to both the Chamblee MARTA Station and DeKalb Peachtree Airport. Interiors offer very high ceilings, exposed brick walls, skylights, and mezzanines connected to the ground floor by spiral staircases. Complementing the rich aesthetics are electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems delivering current day efficiency.
