85 Bluxome Office Building

This project involved demolition of an existing building at 81-85 Bluxome Street and construction of a new 5-story, 56,850 sf office building. RIM managed the design for the new office space including shell building design, roof deck, and common area interiors through all phases of design and construction administration. The 65-foot high building features a private tenant roof deck on fifth level and common amenities on the roof level. The design of the building’s façade frames open window bays using rustic refined panels with an oxidized finish. Open floor plates provide flexibility for the tenant’s needs for creative office space. The design employs modern materials and sustainable design practices including provision of bike lockers and shower facilities. RIM managed the planning and environmental application phase and the design team management for the architecture and interior design, roof deck design, and signage design. 

The building received LEED CSv2009 Gold green building certification, is the first ground-up building in Northern California to achieve Delos WELL Certification, a performance-based building rating focused on human wellness, and is the first building in San Francisco to be rated by the US Resiliency Council (USRC), a rating system for the performance of buildings during earthquakes and other natural disasters.
