We have been working closely with developer Urban Catalyst and architecture firm Brick providing preconstruction services for a new ground up mixed use project featuring 67,000 square feet of office space and 19,500 square feet of retail space located on historic Fountain Alley and 200 feet from a future BART Station.

The project, which is targeting LEED equivalency, is comprised of two buildings that will be joined as one. The existing historic landmark Knox-Goodrich building, built in 1889, will be used as a grand main entrance and lobby for tenants to access modern Class A office space in a new ground up structure. The development will also feature the largest rooftop restaurant and bar in Silicon Valley. A retail facade will wrap down Fountain Alley and mirror the Bank of Italy’s newly renovated retail storefront to create a retail destination.

The project site is uniquely challenging with no direct access due to a light rail line at the front of the building and a future development in the parking lot behind. Coordination with utility access and the underpinning of adjacent structures also increases the complexity of construction. The land is pre-zoned and pre-general planned for mixed use.
