SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA  Located in downtown San Francisco this 23-story, 510,000 SF (48,000 m²) office tower incorporates a “smart building” design that takes advantage of the building’s computerized management, security, energy and communication systems. Designed to offer visual continuity with downtown San Francisco, the three-story stone base comprises a lobby of structural glass, entries on three sides of the building, and retail space. In addition, the neighboring Marine Electric Building renovation is designed to include a childcare center and café/bookstore, along with an outdoor area that provides an 8,600 SF poetry garden and sculpture plaza. The creation of this “humanistic” space adjacent to a serene garden area provides a pleasant retreat for building occupants amidst the busy San Francisco cityscape.
