Baltimore-based developer Atapco Properties is planning an overhaul of its corporate center in Carmel, transforming buildings into buildings with what the Carmel Plan Commission is referring to as a more industrial look.
The $7-million-plus office project at the southeast corner of Carmel Drive and Guilford Avenue is being considered by the Carmel Plan Commission.
Plans call for tearing down two separated buildings and constructing one complete design with 62,500 square feet of space.
According to the plan commission report: “Besides overall design, the most significant change will be the removal of the mounding that currently exists between the sidewalk and the current building, which has created a ‘bunker’ effect/look. The new building will be on the same level as the sidewalk.”
A new vestibule will be created to connect different buildings and the plan commission described the architecture as, “a simple design, with a few bump-outs in the metal panel material to create some visual interest in the façade,” according to the report.
