110 East Atlantic, formally known as the Sopra Center, has received building permits and construction has started. The Richard Jones designed adaptive re-use project will transform the 4-story, 1950’s era, steel frame building into a Modern Class-A office and mixed-use destination.
The building upgrades include enhanced below grade parking, new elevators, windows and a complete façade redesign.
There will be new retail space facing Atlantic Avenue and the new Class-A offices on the upper floors will now enter from a new west facing lobby. The building, defined by a unique exterior level raised plinth, will have it extended south down SE 1st Avenue as well. Current tenant Rocco’s Taco’s will remain through the construction, as will a few of the upstairs financial services tenants. “I am very excited for the potential of SE 1st Avenue,” Richard Jones said. “It certainly will be an enhanced pedestrian experience. We envision this project as an entry point to the SoFa District.”
The project is adjacent to the 111 First Delray condos for sale which are also taking a more contemporary architectural approach to their design.
