The Entry to the Second Floor opens directly into the space. A second floor occupant controls access by turning the elevator key to 'OFF'. The Red Brick structure theme is carried into each floor.
The second floor reception area is positioned to immediately greet visitors coming off the elevator. Rest rooms are adjacent to this area in the corner to the left of this scene. Notice the parquet flooring for a rich and warm entry.
To your left in the entry is the first private office with a view of the all brick side street.
Going down the hallway to the left of the first private office, the immediate next room is a library with bookshelves. Formerly a Law Library, it can also double as conference room. There are two doors.
Leaving the Conference/library room your continue down a Parquet hallway to the main private offices on the East side of the building, all overlooking Lake Morton.
An open area paves the way to access of the four main private offices with dynamite views.
The first private office to eat side has a door to a balcony and a window to the north side of the building. More Parquet flooring.
Your first private office on the east side opens onto a balcony which overlooks Lake Morton, the drive around the lake, the city of Lakeland to the immediate north and homes, apartments, businesses and churches, as well as the Chamber of Commerce, your neighbors. Most of all, the beautiful Swans and other birds who inhabit the lake sides. The original swans were donated to Lakeland by Queen Elizabeth, the story goes.
The next adjacent private office has large windows overlooking the Lake as well as a side door allowing access to the balcony shared with the first office. Carpet on the floor.
Here you have a closer idea of the tremendous view offered the occupants. Across the water see the steeple of First Methodists Church. The Library is to the right of there as well as the Florida Southern Polk Art Museum. Hundreds of people walk the lake everyday nice day.
Looking into the third private office one can full visualize the size of the windows over looking the lake.
Here is a shot of the view from the third and fourth private offices.
And here is the fourth private office. All have ceiling fans and over-head lighting. Here there is a window to the south.
This side include viewing the trees all over the neighborhood.
from the second balcony looking south you view the expansive parking lot that serves a retirement building next door and is also used by the Martin Building. Ample parking!!!
If you need to get back to work, you can close the door and buckle down.
Leaving the offices and going up the left side of the building you come to a break area which has had a coffee maker and supplies.
adjacent to the break station on the right is a very large file room with shelving for office supplies.
To the left of the break station you come upon an area called the bull-pen. Not meant to be derogatory but it, filled with partitions, it has been used for clerical workers who don't meet the public. Lots of windows for sun-light.
Just off the reception area is the location of the electronics for the floor.
Each floor has two emergency exits that lead to the bottom and exits.
One of two bathrooms of the reception area.
