UCSF Office Building and Center for Vision Neurosciences on Block 33


UCSF Office Building and Center for Vision Neurosciences on Block 33 located in San Francisco, CA is a ground-up, Type I concrete mixed-use project. The project is designed by SmithGroupJJR. This Design-Build/IPD project totals 347,500 square feet throughout one structure with three wings: a 12-level tower, a five-level south wing, and a three-level north wing with a rooftop garden. Surface parking totals 75,000 square feet and 200 stalls. The tower houses academic desktop research and administrative space in an open-plan design. Programs in the Proctor Foundation and Ophthalmology Department combine in Building 33 to comprise a new Center for Vision Neurosciences, where clinics and teaching laboratories are located in the south wing. The north wing houses centralized meeting space, including a three-story conference facility. The OSHPD Level 3 project provides a home for scientific initiatives that require desktop space near other UCSF research programs, therefore is located directly across from UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay – these include the Institute for Computational Health Sciences, the CERSI/Drug Development Efficacy Research, the Genomic Medicine Initiative Core and the Bio-banking Core. Webcor self-performed building specialties, carpentry, concrete, and drywall. This project is LEED GoldĀ®.
