In the next two updates, we are going to be heading over to the TAXI development to check in at Drive 2. Back in January, when we first covered this project, it was just a steel shell that was not quite topped out. Now, the 60,000 square foot project is almost complete. In this update, we will be looking at the outside of the project and tomorrow, we will have a special ‘inside the infill’ edition of this project as we take a look inside!
Drive 2 is very similar to its neighbor Drive. In fact, they share the same height, facade, and have a level horizontal window line between both buildings. Here’s a fun fact about this project: Originally, there was supposed to be a single building spanning the entire length of Drive and Drive 2. Because of the economic conditions, the first 40,000 square foot ‘Drive’ was built. Fast forward to present day, there are two separate buildings. However, Drive 2 was designed in a way to look like it was broken off from the original Drive building! This is a very neat and subtle architectural element!
Here are a couple more pictures of Drive and Drive 2 from the back side. From this prospective, you can clearly tell these buildings are twins. In the foreground of the first picture sits the tenant pool which is made from two shipping containers!
Coming up next, we go inside Drive 2 to look at floor-plans and views from this exciting, new development!
