New office building opens at The Works, attracts digital media company

The original 1950s warehouse has been preserved and transformed into a creative office space and features a unique sculptural element at the entrance.

Selig Enterprises has completed 500 Chattahoochee Row, the 70,000 square foot adaptive reuse office building at The Works in the Upper Westside

The office building, designed by Square Feet Studios and built by Dakota Contractors, was originally a 1950s warehouse but was redesigned as flexible office space.

MacDermid Graphic Solutions, an Atlanta-based flexographic and printing solutions company, has already moved into the building, occupying 45,000 square feet.

Selig has also signed Bread N Butter Content Studio, which will move into a 6,160 square foot space later this year.

Founded in 2012 by longtime Atlanta television and radio personality Steak Shapiro, Bread N Butter operates numerous brands, including Atlanta Eats, restaurant social media agency Order Up, as well as the restaurant brand American Eats digital publisher.

Bread N Butter’s new office space will include a flexible workspace for employee collaboration and content capture, 10 editorial video suites, a video viewing room and a 500 square foot covered patio. The team plans to use the property and its unique spaces as a backdrop for the brand’s on-air segments.

500 Chattahoochee Row is The Works’ second office building. Other office tenants on the property include post-production company Uppercut; biopharmaceutical communications company Conisus; and entertainment company iHeart Media.

The Bread N Butter lease brings the total office space leased under the first phase of The Works to 75%.
