2200 Magnolia

In a time when efficiency is king, not everyone would be willing to reimagine a long-vacant auto repair facility as an airy office space, but Capstone Real Estate Investments had the vision and Williams Blackstock was able to carry it out. This century-old structure, angled to match the corner on which it is positioned, was defined by bricked-over windows and sharply sloped floors, ideal for fixing cars, but a challenge for desks and office chairs. The design team created a network of flat areas connected by a serpentine walkway for functional space and visual interest. The 2200 Magnolia Building, now home to Retail Specialists and Retail Strategies, promises to be a game changer for the neighborhood.
