An office complex designed to match Middleburg’s character is being developed just off the town’s historic retail district at Lincoln and The Plains roads.
The complex consists of two buildings, one designed to look like a home, the other a barn.
Construction is currently under way just south of the National Sporting Library and Museum.
The building, called the Middleburg Professional Center, will provide more than 20,000 square feet of office space when completed, according to the developer, Coe Eldredge, of the University Group.
Eldredge said the concept of the development is to provide a better option for offices in the town than the older homes and buildings that were converted into offices on Main Street.
The new offices would enable the storefronts on Main Street to be used for retail and tourism-based businesses, Eldredge said.
He said the exterior of the buildings are designed to capture the look and feel of Middleburg and are modeled after house and barns in the area.
Inside, units of 1,200 to 3,000 square feet will feature open floor plans and high-speed Internet.
"The building is not a retail location, strictly office space," said Eldredge.
Both buildings are currently for lease. Jackson Clinics, a locally owned physical therapy practice, will occupy 6,000 square feet of the barn building, Eldredge said.
The hope is to have the building finished by the end of this year and tenants signed up soon thereafter.
