Fifty West

Fifty West, the Southeastern United States’ first three-story building erected with Cross Laminated Timber (CLT). Encompassing 28,900 square feet and prominently situated along Highway 50, Fifty West has redefined the local skyline. It provides Class A retail and commercial lease space, affording tenants a unique interior and breathtaking views of the surrounding area.

Vision and Inspiration

Fifty West, a trailblazer in sustainable construction, is driven by the unwavering commitment to eco-conscious building design. Pioneering the use of alternative building products, the project aspired to create a modern, yet naturally harmonious environment that deviates from the conventional norms of commercial architecture.

Goals and Expectations

Fifty West, with its Class A retail and commercial lease space, raises the standard for a distinctive environment that seamlessly incorporates natural beauty through interior finishes and the abundance of natural light. 

The Design Process

The incorporation of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) seamlessly united the design and construction to create Fifty West. Powell Studio Architecture’s design team and engineers skillfully blended materials to achieve an aesthetic of modern architecture and structural integrity. The design aligned with the owner’s visionary aspirations to deliver distinctive Class A office space. 

Insights on the project

The incorporation of Cross Laminated Time (CLT) marked a milestone as the first of its kind in the state of Florida. The exterior showcases a modern glass façade with decorative lighting, while the interior remains exposed to the natural wood features, blending elements of both nature and modern design. The highly efficient product not only ensures structural integrity but also minimizes environmental impact by promoting eco-friendliness, reducing construction waste, and enhancing thermal performance.

Results and Impact

In 2020, Fifty West welcomed tenants to its state-of-the-art Class A office space, featuring cutting-edge building product selection and construction techniques. Powell Studio Architecture successfully executed interior build-outs for UIC, Inc., Kaba Consulting, Stewardship Advisory Group, Royal Oak Medical Center, and Canna Care Wellness
