Encore at The Interlock

The Interlock co-locates tech-forward incubator space, residences and stylish storefronts in West Midtown. Within the dynamic, mixed-use building, Leapley provided the first generation build out for GATV, a technology organization affiliated with The Georgia Institute of Technology. Leapley completed interior construction of two floors to support Encore software development and operations, while mitigating the challenges associated with limited elevator access issues and concurrent base building construction. Leapley’s work included a community hub area, patio, roll-up door conference room partition and demountable office fronts.
