"We waited more than four years to develop this property and needed it to be completed on time by a trusted partner…CEI's San Francisco market knowledge and high-rise building experience made them the obvious choice…"
Though high-rise construction in San Francisco came to a grinding halt in 2001, leading property developer, operator and manager Tishman Speyer knew the stall was only temporary. In 2006, Tishman Speyer relied on general contractor Turner Construction and electrical contractor Cupertino Electric to build the first “Class A” high-rise in more than four years in downtown San Francisco. The 34-floor, full-height glass building with 625,000 square feet of office space located at 555 Mission Street is filled with light and stunning views of the San Francisco Bay.
The project features a reflective roof to reduce energy costs and two basement levels containing 180 parking spaces in a below-grade parking garage. To support the office tower, the building has a steel frame structure with metal decks and concrete supporting the office floors. Our project team installed the full electrical for the core and shell portion of the building, as well as oversaw 14 subsequent tenant improvements.
