Rio Office Park - Buildings 6, 7 & 8

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill as Architects

Designed to be a totally self-sufficient business park independent of the surrounding city infrastructure, the most modern technologies and building systems have been incorporated into the plan. The office park includes traditional suburban amenities such as retail, access to major traffic corridors, and underground parking. The park is also designed to be ecologically sensitive to its surroundings through the creation of a buffer zone between the office buildings and the water’s edge. Since the master planning stages, SOM has been contracted to design the first five buildings in the park. Of these five low- to mid-rise buildings, three are designed to house large companies, which will occupy either entire floors or entire buildings. The remaining two buildings will be filled with office suites. The buildings are tied together by a common color scheme, while distinctive roof forms and a variety of stone finishes contribute to each building’s distinct identity within the office park.
