Project Description

IST Management Building


Client: IST

Location: Atlanta, Georgia

Status: Under Construction 2022


  • 50,000+ sf headquarters building for IST



When IST Management Services chose Atlanta for its new International Headquarters, the president of the worldwide facilities management company selected TSW Founding Principal Jerry Spangler to design the signature development at 131 Moreland Ave. in East Atlanta. The 50,000 square-foot, Class-A office building and surrounding 8-acre Halidom mixed-use development are expected to be transformational for the area, bringing office workers, shoppers and diners to the property and elevating the overall aesthetic of the community. TSW’s sleek design features a modern industrial look, which makes a strong visual statement, but still fits the urban neighborhood. Retail and restaurant spaces are situated on the ground floor and a beautiful, two-acre nature park and Greenway along Intrenchment Creek are sure to become a popular amenity. Inside, a blend of contemporary and industrial design elements welcome visitors and workers, and each floor is flooded with natural light thanks to large, floor-to-ceiling windows. Office spaces were created to foster collaboration, while also offering each employee a private area to call their own. Meeting areas include “phone booths”, huddle rooms and traditional conference rooms, including a 20-person executive board room. Building materials were carefully selected to control noise levels throughout. Additional features include a wellness room, flex space, and larger than usual restrooms. To fire the imagination and foster camaraderie, the building offers employees a café with tables and booths, a game room, outdoor patio, well-appointed kitchen and private dining room. Despite the COVID shutdowns, worker shortages and supply chain issues during 2021-2022, this beautiful new office building is now open and welcoming IST Management Services employees and visitors.
