270 Brannan in San Francisco was developed as a core and shell office and was leased to the full-building tenant, Splunk, prior to completion of construction. The 202,103-square-foot commercial building consists of two masses connected by a common core; the south mass is five stories tall and the north mass is seven stories tall, five of which will be above existing grade. The partial basement, under the south mass portion of the building, provides vehicular and bicycle parking, shower facilities and delivery truck parking.
We provided sustainability services to Pfau Long Architects for the building's sustainability program, which completed in 2016.
