Kilroy Realty has started construction of a new six-storey brick and concrete office space in the SOMA district of San Francisco, US, marking the company’s second ground-up development project.
Construction on the $95m project follows approval from the San Francisco Planning Commission in August 2013.
The 180,000ft² development involves construction of an on-site restaurant, ground floor retail amenities, in addition to a roof-top garden common area.
According to the construction firm, 333 Brannan Street’s open floor plates, natural light and operable windows will create a work environment that will appeal to the technology and media firms that predominate in the South of Market area.
Project architect David Johnson said: "The site is one of the city’s first to employ eco-district strategies and the project reflects Kilroy Realty’s progressive, long-term view and understanding of building designs, and we believe that this project will raise the standards for future development."
The launch of the 333 Brannan Street project brings KRC’s overall office space under construction to over 1.8 million ft², in addition to 2.7 million ft² of operating properties in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Kilroy Realty is currently constructing three new corporate offices for tech firms salesforce.com, LinkedIn and Synopsys.
Last month, KRC broke ground on Crossing/900, which is a two-building office campus in Redwood City.
