Triangle Pointe

Project
Built in the late-’60s, Triangle Pointe had never been updated. Great bones were obscured behind dropped popcorn ceilings, beige quarry tile, and a forest of yellow oak. Originally occupied by a single tenant, the building had an entrance and cramped lobby with no sense of arrival. The new purchaser desired to reposition the property to be a viable, productive, multi-tenant office building. The goal was to intrigue, with details providing moments of discovery as visitors moved through the space. The result is a warm interpretation of modern design that offers a fresh counterpoint to the...Learn more

The Shops North at the Old Mill

Project
This lifestyle retail development includes three buildings totaling 38,690 SF on 7.5 acres within an existing retail/mixed-use development.

Mackenzie designed the Shops...Learn more
