A field trip to the new Inlander HQ

Posted By on Tue, May 14, 2013 at 8:24 AM

As you may know, The Inlander is moving to a new home in Kendall Yards this summer. Photographer Young Kwak took photos back in February, and our publisher wrote about the progress in March when the construction crew installed the main staircase.

Last Thursday some of us from the editorial side took a little field trip to see how our new offices on the top floor are coming together. We kicked around in the dirt out back where the Centennial Trail will be coming through, and debated the feasibility of a zipline down the river.

Here are some photos from our visit:

The sign is up on the north-facing street entrance.

Right when you get up the stairs to the top floor, you can look down over the entrance atrium. Editorial staff will be on this floor.

A view of the top floor the other direction, toward the river. This is the future home of our desks.

The view from the top floor down to the river and the downtown skyline. The dirt path is where the Centennial Trail will come through. The wooden railing belongs to our future deck.

Workers were making progress on the south side of the building the morning we visited. The entrance on the east side of the building, to the right, leads to the first of three floors. Our next-door neighbor, on the left in this photo, is Spa Paradiso. Central Food is just another lot over in that direction.
