Kilroy recently celebrated the topping off milestone in the construction of 100/150 Hooper, located at the crossroads of Potrero Hill and Mission Bay neighborhoods. A collaboration between DPR Construction, FORGE and Pfau Long Architecture, the complex will provide both office space and manufacturing space, as well as retail, serving as a unique campus that reflects the changing face of Bay Area business.
“100 Hooper represents a truly innovative environment, offering both creative office space and production space under one roof,” said Rick Buziak, Senior Vice President at Kilroy. “The interplay between office and manufacturing space with plentiful outdoor space makes this one of the most unique campuses in the area. With 100 Hooper, Kilroy embraces the diverse economy of San Francisco.”
The campus includes two four-story buildings at 100 Hooper offering 311,000-square-feet of creative office space on the upper levels and 86,000-square-feet of light industrial space on the ground floor. The lower PDR (Production, Distribution and Repair) space is specifically designed for innovators, inventors and craftspeople performing design, manufacturing, production and related activities.
The office space includes design details that reflect traditional manufacturing, including exposed structures for open offices, steel bridges used as flexible spaces to interconnect floors and adjacent buildings, as well as the outdoor conference rooms and open collaboration spaces. Adobe Systems, one of the largest software companies in the world, has signed on to lease all 311,000-square-feet of the office space.
A third building, 150 Hooper, will serve as a “manufacturing foundry” with 49,000 square feet of space exclusive to light industrial tenants and operated by PlaceMade, a sister non-profit to SFMade who is dedicated to helping manufacturers start, stay and grow in San Francisco. PlaceMade is San Francisco’s first non-profit industrial real estate developer whose mission is to sustain and grow urban manufacturing jobs by creating more manufacturing real estate that is functional, accessible and affordable.
The 100 Hooper project is LEED Platinum-designed and being built in the middle of a busy corridor adjacent to university and hospital campuses and strategically located near public transportation. Construction is expected to complete in early 2018.
“We’ve had a lot of fun building this project with a great team from Kilroy and our design partners,” said Jeremy Bartle, DPR project manager. “It’s exciting being a part of a one of kind project that brings local manufacturing and office space together in San Francisco. We have a passion to support local San Francisco businesses and culture and this site exemplifies that.”
