400 PAUL AVENUE
Consisting of three buildings, 400 Paul Avenue is a premier powered shell data center in San Francisco, California. The facility is the first purpose built center in the city of San Francisco in over a decade. 400 Paul offers physical access to 12 MW of electrified utility connection, with an additional 12 MW utility feed committed by PG&E. The property also provides access to the densest fiber network of any datacenter location in the entire northern California market and a landing spot for traffic from Europe and Asia to the West Coast.
Jones Lang LaSalle engaged Brereton to develop hypothetical interior plans and schematic design concepts for two of the buildings and and exterior building modifications and landscape design for the third new data center building.
Building A is a turn of the century historic mission style building. This building is imagined to be a social hub and combination food hall, bar, event space, all hands and conference center. It will also be a space where one can find a quiet nook to do heads down work or take a private call. The proposed stair is the focal point of the space and is design to incorporate stadium seating that can be used as casual meeting space or a place for an all hands meeting.
Building B is designed for both collaboration and individual work space. The plan includes benching type work stations, support spaces, meeting room, zoom rooms and open collaboration.
Brereton reimagined the exterior of building C with redesigned parking and landscaping, new paint color scheme, new roll up doors, glazing and awnings.
