Dean Rd. and Opelika Rd., it was a very challenging site for development due to wetlands on one end, bad soils, easements, setbacks, and other constraints. The site and building design were carefully coordinated to maximize the interior space while meeting the functional needs of exterior circulation and access.  The lobby was treated to a vaulted ceiling with clerestory windows to open up what would otherwise be a fairly tight and confining space.
