A five-minute drive from the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, the recently built 2999 Olympus is now home to two Alphabet companies: Verily, a life sciences business, and Wing, a drone delivery company. Verily and Wing occupy the top floor (32,000 sf and 4,000 sf, respectively) of the 10-story building, located in the lakeside, work-life-play development of Cypress Waters.
O’Brien Architects’ design of 2999 Olympus prioritizes tenant health and wellbeing with touchless entry, antimicrobial wraps on common area doors, a chilled water HVAC system, and air filtration systems in the elevators. Amenities include a coffee bar in the lobby and a fitness center with locker rooms and towel service. Employees also can access lakeside trails as well as outdoor parks and workspaces equipped with Wi-Fi.
The building’s second and 10th floors provide balconies offering lake views. And its façade features precast panels with brick-inlays and a double-height canopy at the base.
Rogers-O’Brien Construction, which built 2999 Olympus, also completed the finish-out of three floors for clients Sahara Equity, Tamko, and Verily/Wing.
O’Brien Architects designed Verily’s space to include flexible workspaces, three client presentation rooms, and two fiber lines with one serving as backup. Security measures include card access and a lobby video camera that identifies each person. Verily’s space also features ceiling clouds made of felt, overhead wood beams, a café breakroom with booth seating, and a backlit LED wall with inset live moss.
