Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 09, 2016
Architecture and design firm Stantec in Miami, has completed the lobby renovation of the 10-story Financial Center at the Gardens, a premier office building located at 3801 PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
The new 2,300 sf lobby features a wine/coffee bar and lounge with wine lockers for tenants to store their wine and also serves as a venue for private events. Communal tables were added to provide a relaxed social environment and an alternative workspace that’s appealing to the millennial workforce.
Located in the popular golf town of Palm Beach Gardens, a 15x13 putting green was fittingly included in the redesign. This unique amenity allows employees of current tenants such as UBS Financial Services, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase and RBC Capital Markets the opportunity to take a break during the hectic workweek and perfect their put.
“The building’s owners, KBS Realty Advisors, wanted to set their property apart,” said designer Barbara Savage, senior associate, Stantec. “It was important that the renovations reflect their commitment to an upscale, Class A office environment, while providing a welcoming, comfortable space to all their tenants and guests.”
The lobby’s redesign also included high-end finishes, such as walnut wood, along with plush leather seating, distinctively-designed wool rugs, and opulent marble floors that convey the prestigious character of the building. The renovation encompassed a new management office, new security desk, and improvements to the restrooms and parking garage.
