Spear Street Tops Off Sustainable Bay Area Office Project
300 Kansas will be among San Francisco’s first all-electric, zero-carbon buildings.
Spear Street Capital has topped out 300 Kansas, an approximately 70-foot research and development advanced manufacturing building in San Francisco.
The 150,000-square-foot property was designed by Kansas City, Mo.-based El Dorado Architects and features an all-electric, zero-carbon design, according to a statement from Spear Street. Webcor is the general contractor for the six-story building.
Construction at the property is due to wrap by this summer, with the first tenants expected to arrive in September. Newmark is the exclusive leasing agent for the building. Groundworks Office has been brought on as landscape designer for the property’s front roof deck and garden, which will total 4,500 square feet and offer views of the city, the San Francisco Bay and Mount Diablo.
Located on the corner of Kansas and 16th Streets in San Francisco’s Design District, the building is expected to run exclusively on renewable energy and will include electric vehicle charging stations, as well as bicycle storage, in its underground parking facility.
Spear Street has enlisted environmental consultant Atelier Ten and the International Living Futures Institute to achieve zero-carbon performance at the site. Carbon neutrality will be achieved during construction with the use of materials with lower embodied carbon than the industry standard, with carbon offsets to be purchased to account for the balance, according to a statement from Spear Street.
