Drive 2 at TAXI

Phase II of Taxi campus redevelopment.

Drive 2 is the second phase of a 100,000 square foot addition to Zeppelin Development’s Taxi campus. The building added 56,000 square feet of commercial space to the site. While previous phases, including Freight, consisted of the conversion of existing buildings, the Drive buildings are new construction. Dynia Architects’ design intent needed to integrate Drive 2 with the gritty, industrial character of the site, match the energy of the existing buildings and bring its own unique presence to the complex.

Drive 2 is a continuation of the language developed in the original Drive building but includes its own features. The basic skin consists of black corrugated steel, punctured by garage door openings on all floors. The glass garages create a connection to the distant cityscape and mountains, as well as the adjacent river and rail lines while providing ventilation when open. Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture served as architect-of-record and Dynia Architects was the design architect.
