Designed by architecture firm Johnson Designs, Inc., The Grain will feature two buildings that offer 60,000 square feet of office space, 18,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and 125 parking spaces, including 42,000 square feet of underground parking.
Mass timber is a state-of-the-art construction method that is revolutionizing the way many companies construct their properties. It combines solid wood panels and beams to create a structure that is exceptionally stable and versatile. Mass timber is an environmentally friendly, low-carbon alternative to concrete and steel. The exterior will have a timeless design, yet the structure and interior finishes will represent the future of modern day construction. By leaving columns and ceilings exposed it will create an open and refined space for tenants that will be more desirable than a typical office or retail space.
