San Diego City College Science Building Grand Opening

The Grand Opening of the San Diego City College Science Building was held on February 19, 2014. The 98,000 square foot building houses four floors of new classrooms, labs, and state-of-the-art technology for the Life Sciences and Physical Sciences programs. The building includes many special features such as sunshade devices to reduce solar heat gain and glare, and light shelves that harvest daylight to reduce energy demands from artificial lighting. Additionally, all windows utilize performance glass that allows sunlight to filter into the building, but reduces the amount of UV light and solar heat entering the building. The project is on track to obtain a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Thinking About Creative Space

Creative Space - A New Asset Class?

So-called “creative space” has historically been the domain of companies like entertainment and media firms, ad agencies, architects, design shops and others that rely on creative workers as the core of their operations. Demand for this space got a big boost in the dot-com boom of the late 1990s, when scores of new tech companies sought cool spaces for their new enterprises. Now, however, the pool of tenants interested in out-of-the-box space has broadened. “Prospects now include more traditional tenants who compete for the best talent and want competitive space,causing vacancy in this class to plummet while traditional office availabilities abound,” he adds.
